Ode to the Wrong Angle No. 1, USA

About

Ode to the Wrong Angle is a series comprised of sculptural vessels created through the artist’s experiments in his studio employing unique materials and textures. Gander begins with found objects, which though sculpting and manipulation provide the initial forms of each vessel. The works are then carved, assembled, and cast in aluminum before being powder coated in jewel tones further, enhanced with a second powder coating of glitter. Blurring the boundaries between durable and disposable and the delicate and the permanent, Gander’s work challenges notions of form and function. The works are haphazard and improvisational, and yet functional as vases, planters, or even a champagne bucket. Gander treats functionality as a ground for aesthetic play. His wide-ranging curiosity fuels his research-driven practice. He engages a multitude of unconventional materials, describing his unique works as “a culmination of many collisions.”Gander seeks out materials that allow him to go from impulse to final result with few intermediate steps. Using resins, paper pulps, single-use molds, spray foam, and cast-able concrete allows the artist’s hand to resonate throughout the work, addressing the “longing for haptic connection” Gander feels is a by-product of digital culture. A recent move to a large warehouse-sized studio space in rural New Jersey has opened up Gander’s opportunity to experiment with new materials, including lightweight glass fiber, reinforced concrete, and color-shifting pigments, while allowing his works to take on a monumental scale. Maintaining a delicate balance between whimsy and function helps stabilize Gander’s design practice. “I want a certain level of seriousness with my play, to know that it’s connected to an inquiry that has a weighted intention behind it,” he says. “When it’s playful but also having to hit these measures of functionality, that’s the kind of place that I find the most compelling.”
