About Rick Cain
Sculpture has an incredibly visceral aspect to it, one that places art directly into the human world and forces viewers to interact with the piece as they would a being. That is the effect, at least, of Rick Cain's work. Cain is known for his incredibly lifelike depictions of animals and humans, with ancient themes often present in his creations. Many of his pieces are inspired by the natural world, and as a result, he is able to carve amazingly effective and emotionally vivid shapes from inanimate wood and stone. Often, his pieces utilize the natural and original characteristics of the material to their advantage, giving them a raw and energetic feeling that is nearly impossible for any craftsman to capture alone. Many of his sculptures are also colored, although some rely only on the natural hues of the wood. For examples of the range of Cain's work, check out the vast inventory on eBay. Everything from wolves to dolphins to wise old men are a testament to Rick Cain's skill and dedication to craft.
