Benoît Averly creates, in a refined spirit, art pieces in wood; with subtle contrasts, playing with light, lines and textures. Inspired by nature and architecture, he feeds his creations through his photographic journey through numerous trips, in search of a rhythm, and quiet balance.
Wood, a media he discovered in his childhood, is worked in simple shapes, rarely smooth, most often hewn with different effects of matter, texture, or repetitive patterns. On some pieces the wood loses its obvious aspect, taking on instead, the properties of other elements.
The work is instinctive, and often takes place all at once, after a long reflection akin to the calligraphy style. His most coveted creations, prized by interior designers, architects and collectors world wide, most reflect a peaceful grace, and are centerpieces in numerous luxury interiors. (Residences, hotels, cruise ships, airports )
Benoît Averly turns and carves wood. As he creates his sculptures, he looks carefully at lines and shapes. He likes sharp contrasts, the play of shadows, black and white. Inspired by architecture and the search for sobriety. He builds his pieces of work with precision and sensitivity in a contemporary spirit.
His creations, to be put down or hung on the wall for interior decoration will find their place in modern indoors as well as classic ones.
