Alex Roskin, Héron Console, USA, 2018
Roskin’s Heron Console reflects the artist’s modernist and primitive influences. With Heron Console, Roskin rejects outright anthropomorphic mimicry in favor of subtle, a sculpted muscular forms and sinuous movement. Inspired by innovative designers including Richard Serra, Wendel Castle, and Constantin Brancusi, Alex Roskin’s works blend functional and artistic design.
Roskin notes: “I try with each piece to create a stance and a presence, some with more contrapposto. I aim to give each piece a feeling that it’s inhaling or ready to make a move. I try to steer clear of the decorative, but to draw on mass, volume, line, negative space, and my love of materials and the craft of working with them.”
