Have An Artistic Valentine's Day with Pieter Ceizer's New 'Amour' Wood SculptureWho needs flowers and chocolates?
Flowers, chocolates and a big ol’ teddy bear are time-honored Valentine’s Day gifts, but if your special someone is an artistic sort — or if you’re a single artistic sort who’s looking to cop something to stave off the gnawing loneliness that the “holiday” often bestows — Pieter Ceizer has got you covered this season. His long-running Woody sculpture series is continuing with a new model dubbed Amour, a love-filled creation that marks his second Valentine’s-themed release after 2021’s Love sculpture.
Hand-crafted in Ceizer’s Paris atelier, Amour is a humanoid heart with outstretched arms and legs and its tagline painted directly across its visage. It’s doused in vivacious red and equipped with white screen-printed details that highlight the Dutch-born artist’s mono-line style, beautiful in its intentional simplicity. Each sculpture stands roughly 10 inches tall, is signed and numbered on the bottom of its feet and comes in a custom wooden box.
If you’re looking to get some Valentine’s Day wood, Amour will touch down on Pieter Ceizer’s webstore and at KITH Paris come 12:00 CET February 9. It’s limited to 30 units, 27 of which are allocated to the webstore and three of which will be available at KITH Paris.
Elsewhere in the art world, there’s no love lost between Philadelphia and Kansas City: the cities’ art museums are betting art on Super Bowl LVII.
