Walter van Straaten

Walter van Straaten is a Herefordshire based artist by adoption, who has always been attracted by the beauty of the country’s ancient woodlands. Looking for a way to bring out the beauty of the wood itself, he settled on the idea of blending it with a strongly contrasting material – polished stainless steel – so that each element draws something from the other. Two elements as one. Does it work? We would love your views on that.
