We have seen it in thousands of photographs, but never like this. The Manhattan skyline rises majestically over the city of New York in these wooden replicas devised by the American artist James McNabb, from his work, The City Series. A tribute to the nature and asphalt of the big apple.

Consolidating tradition and innovation

Once again, art and wood go hand in hand to create stunning sculptural works. The City Series shows the transformation of great urban nuclei, as well as the changing and evolutionary landscape of cities. McNabb uses wood exclusively to reflect this impersonality and grandeur of capital cities, working the material little by little to resemble horizons of pointed skyscrapers. In this way, he creates very singular skylines.

Bending wood at will

To create these staggering figures in relief, the artist has made use of his experience in his old trade, carpentry, to carve every detail of the city skyline with great care. The suburbs come to life in this example of contemporary art with reliefs in various geometric shapes, outlining them to give the sensation of emptiness.

All the natural wood used comes from waste and recycled material, which reiterates the environmental commitment of many artists who work to give a second life to this element. By carving the wood and making it his focus, McNabb has managed to create unique and elegant scenarios. Unforgettable works.
