John Procario, Basin Series Wall Sconce Pair, USA, 2020
John Procario’s torqued, vessel-shaped Basin Series engages the viewer both physically and psychologically by synthesizing conceptual art, minimalism, and contemporary design. The hand-carved vessels levitate weightlessly on the wall, in harmony with the central aura of light reflected in the warmth of the wood. The captivating works have the effect of drawing the viewer in. Much like the works of Richard Serra and Anish Kapoor, Procario’s commanding sculptures create emotional impact through sensation and observation.
As with his popular Freeform Series that uses the act of placing stress on wood to achieve an incredible fluidity, the Basin series achieves emotional resonance through an equally masterful manipulation of wood, transcending the material’s inherent confines.
Having grown up around his carpenter father’s workshop, John Procario brought his love of woodworking to the world of design. After studying sculpture in graduate school, Procario developed a unique aesthetic that influences his sculptural lighting.
As Procario works on a commission basis, custom designs may be requested.
