Even a close look at the apparently rusted piping may not reveal to the viewer that the hollow pipes in this trompe l'oeil sculpture are actually made of wood.

Accomplished artist Hubert Landri has been creating work in turned wood for more than a decade, often bringing his expertise in metalsmithing to the process. His work has been exhibited in galleries in Europe and the United States. “This discipline allows me to combine various elements of different types and structure such as wrought iron, Damascus, titanium and wood. This taste for mixtures of substances leads me every time to personal connections and deeper into the creation of unique and unusual pieces.

"I have been working with wood since my youth. I started my work in wood creating sculptural pieces. In 2001, I discovered woodturning art at Journées Mondiales in Puy St Martin. the work that was presented there was of the highest quality and I was taken with what the artists were able to create in wood. It seemed to be a perfect union between the creative and the material. I was sure that this was the path that I wanted to take. In 2004 I began woodturning and I have had the opportunity to study with some of the great French artists (Gilbert Buffart, Jean François Escoulen, Alain Mailland, Christian Delhon, Yann Marrot, Australian artist Neil Scobie, and New Zealander Rolly Munro. And Israeli artist Eli Avisera. These various internships and encounters with other artists in field have allowed me to grow with my art. I have found that woodturning is the perfect vehicle for creation of my art pieces. It has allowed me to incorporate other elements of nature and structure, using forged steel, titanium, Damascus steel and wood combination. This mixture of materials in my work allows me create pieces that are distinctly different and unique. I am proud to have been awarded the “Peoples Award” from concourt Breville in 2010 and to have been invited to participate in this major exhibition in consecutive years since then."
