Arne Quinze has established his career as the creator of magical wooden installations that invade the spaces where they are placed, made from multiples types of wood. His art revolves around the concepts of social interaction, communication, and urbanism. Each installation alludes to his belief that an idealistic society is possible, one where all individuals interact and communicate creating a fluid dialogue.

The brightly colored fragments of wood construct large scale pieces, which stretch and twist to fit the space Quinze has chosen. From gallery spaces to busy streets, the installations call out to the viewers and passer-by, with the goal of provoking a reaction and intervene directly in their lives. His sculptures are often placed in a way that they are confronted with the normal flow of people, making them almost impossible to ignore. This confrontation between the viewer and the piece configures a study on interaction, urban movement and the evolution of the relationship between humans and their surroundings.
