Reclaimed wood pieces are given a second life through the art of Jynae Bergeron.
The Canada-based artist, better known as Art & Airplanes, practices pyrography, a technique that involves using a heated metal pen to burn wood.
In this way, she renders striking modern designs inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
Originally from Saskatchewan, Bergeron says she discovered her love for the western landscape over time. She uses her artistic practice to shed light on the grandeur of untouched nature, capturing everything from dramatic mountains to towering pine trees in her work.
“My focus is primarily on the landscapes and animals of the Pacific Northwest, as I believe my work speaks to a collective that is always longing for wild and beautiful spaces,” he says.
In addition to hand-carving these nature-inspired designs, he makes sure the materials also honor the environment.
“I take discarded wood that finds its way to burn piles or landfills and turn it into organic representations of the places we want to witness,” he adds.
“With the current construction of our Western society, being constantly immersed in Mother Nature is not always achievable for many; Therefore, my passion is to fill living spaces with startling reminders of what lies ahead.”
When placed in the home, Bergeron’s art offers a portal to the nature that is out there waiting for us.
