Reclaimed wood is transformed into huge lookalike gemstones

Woodrocks is an exceptional art series by Victoria Wagner that uses reclaimed wood and turns it into geometric forms that look just like massive gemstones.

The wood is painted to follow organic growth patterns and feature incredible graduent spectrums that make them look like they really are gems from far away.

Her work is for sale, but it’ll cost you a pretty penny — around $2,000 per piece.

Here’s what Victoria has to say of her work:

‘My eye generally and naturally tends toward tessellation and pattern, seeking a rhythm that mimics regular pulse. On the one hand, visual order provides a place for the senses to rest, while color relationships create problems for the brain to solve. I like this simultaneity.

‘There is something confusing to the senses in combinations that vacillate between interval and tone, allowing for optical engagement and a perceptual unpredictability.

‘White space rushing….like moving quickly past a picket fence that appears to pulsate in rhythmic visual beats. I imagine deep space being very much like this, an interpretive time signature,vibrating and arching indeterminately’.
