Paul Vexler

(American, born 1947)

Based in Snohomish, Washington, artist Paul Vexler creates sculptures that investigate mathematical forms. He often uses wood as his primary material. He notes, "Wood, to me, is a plastic medium. Many artists use wood carving or construction; the evolution of my work is based on an exploration of the ways in which wood can be pushed, pulled, bent, twisted, compressed, stretched, and punctured."
