Christen Dokk Smith’s passion is sculpture. From fantastic figures that recall Viking folklore, to “A Boy in Wonderment at the World” capturing the marvel of a four-year old discovering a tree to the primitivism of Stone Age Olmec colossal heads, his sculpture carving is incredibly versatile. He studied sculpture at City & Guilds of London Art School in London, England on scholarship as part of his apprenticeship and Diploma in Woodcarving. With finesse, he executes low-relief sculptural design including the asymmetry, intricate curves, and linking zoomorphic creatures of Viking design as well as crafting fully three-dimensional large-scale sculpture rendering beauty from the grain and flaws of the salvaged wood he works with. His sleek and modern west coast bears hint at the same Norse fascination with wild creatures evident in earliest Viking carving.
