Alex Roskin, Héron Console, USA, 2018
Inspired by innovative designers including Richard Serra, Wendel Castle, and Constantin Brancusi, Alex Roskin’s works blend functional and artistic design. 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, sinuous movement and a bit of whimsy.
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.”
