Matthias Pliessnig's bent wood furniture has beenseenherebefore, but last night he introduced some stunning new pieces during his Debut Solo Exhibit at the Wexler gallery. The centerpiece of the exhibit is a large steam bent oak seating sculpture titled Providence. It's the result of over 5 weeks of careful planning, prototyping, bending, and forming. Also included in the gallery is a collection of mixed media sculptural studies that Matthias creates along with his furniture.
Hopefully we will see more bent goodness from Matthias now that his new studio in Philadelphia is up and running.
