2014 academy art exhibit

The exhibition, Wood Transformed: The Art of Vicco von Voss, will be displayed May 10 through July 13, 2014, with curator led tours on Wednesday, May 28 and Friday, June 20, both at 12 noon. Vicco von Voss was born in Kiel, Germany, where he was greatly influenced by both his grandfathers. One was a forester and woodcarver who inspired Vicco’s deep love of nature, understanding of trees, and introduced him to the craft of woodworking. The other was an architect who worked in conjunction with Frank Lloyd Wright to re-build structures in post-war Hamburg. The essence of Vicco’s work is in relationships: he feels a spiritual connection to trees, an understanding of the nature of wood, a collaborative partnership with clients, and a unique creative process with each piece. The exhibit will contain a new body of work consisting of 20 newly sculpted pieces.

German born artist Vicco von Voss has been making objects for most of his life. Born in Kiel, Germany, von Voss was greatly influenced by both of his grandfathers. One was a forester and woodcarver who introduced him to the craft of woodworking and inspired Vicco’s deep love of nature and understanding of trees. The other was an architect who worked in conjunction with Frank Lloyd Wright to rebuild structures in post-war Hamburg. Vicco believes he inherited his sense of space and design from these early interactions. Read more
