Ilan Averbuch makes indoor and outdoor sculptures in different combinations of common building materials—stone, wood, metal, and glass. Many components are recycled; their former uses are revealed through the remnants of surface details. Some of Averbuch's works appear to defy gravity, as hidden complex constructions allow wooden planks to float and fragile glass to support heavy stone. His sculptures balance whimsical forms against serious themes and heavy, chunky carved elements with elegant results. Architectural, archaeological, and Biblical subjects are common in the artist's pieces—no doubt influences of his Israeli heritage.
