Laminated Wood Sculpture
Longtime artist wants to reinvest in Jacksonville arts community
One Spark creator David Engdahl has been producing laminated plywood sculpture art for 41 years. He exhibits in 21 states across the country.
He has sold his work for upwards of $4,000 in the past. At One Spark, however, he wants to win the money for another reason.
"Anything I make from One Spark is going right back into the Jacksonville art community," Engdahl said. "I've seen the art community grow in great ways over the years, but I want to see more. I know we have it here."
Engdahl's art has a sleek, contemporary look.
He has exhibited his art in four U.S. embassies: Bahrain, Latvia, Angola, and Zimbabwe.
"One Spark is great for Jacksonville, especially for Downtown," Engdahl said. "It gives artists and creators a chance to present what they have created to the people."
