Wave series Mirror in Two-Tone Italian Silver Leaf

$7,500per item

About

Sculptural mirror in two-tone genuine Italian silver leaf finish. This particular unique finish is produced in collaboration with Van Gregory & Norton gilding shop, but multiple other variants on gilding finish are shown in our pictures; also, any of Wave and Wave II series finishes can be used at customization stage. Wave series objects invert a narrative of purely utilitarian objects into an artistic interpretation of interplay of color, light, and shadow on organic-based three dimensional forms. Organic, biomorphic shape of the mirror evokes calm and carefully conceived balance of natural and man-made, representing an artistic approach to utilitarian objects. Structural clarity of the shapes of Wave objects supports evocative and poetic virtues of varnishes utilized throughout the series. Wave and Wave II series topography is based on a group of small waves shifting through an infinite rolling tunnel-like shape, representing a form in motion, momentarily captured in a static object. The decision to work in custom format was based on environmental concerns and opposition to culture of mass production and pure consumerism. The choice of materials was heavily influenced by sustainability and environmental concerns. All objects are made locally in the Brooklyn Navy Yard workshop. Elimination of storage and transportation needs for mass-produced furniture in lieu of creating a custom made objects on demand allows us to reduce waste of materials and energy. About the Maker: Roman Erlikh is a professional woodworker with over 20 years’ experience. Before opening his antique furniture fabrication and restoration facility in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Roman underwent extensive apprenticeships in a variety of furniture fabricating facilities throughout New York. His first furniture collections were inspired by traditional Art Deco and Biedermeier styles interpreted through a modern lifestyle demands. After completing digital fabrication class in NYC College of Technology, Roman upgraded the studio with 3D modeling and a custom built CNC router. Stepping away from merely utilitarian view of everyday objects, his recent collections are filled with meaningful textual context while incorporating traditional and modern woodworking techniques. Roman is using practical function as a common denominator to create emotionally charged art objects, blurring the boundary between art and function. While appreciating possibilities of ordinary materials, Roman is developing new mixed media multilayered composite varnishes and utilizes decorative gilding and mica veneer to actively engage ambient light, giving an additional aspect to relation of his objects to their environment.
