Sunny Wood’s whale carvings are derived from a personal relationship between the artist and his experience with nature. As Sunny carves, the grain and knots in the wood become realized and the whale comes to life. Each whale takes on a unique personality conveyed through its expressive eye that tell the history of Nantucket in a single wink. Sunny Wood’s whales can be seen at the artist reception hosted by Samuel Owen Gallery this Friday, June 5th from 6-9pm at 46 Centre Street.
