Alex Roskin, High Chair / Bar Stool in Aluminum, USA

Price Upon Request

About

Alex Roskins Tusk Series reflects his penchant for an animality in form. The versatile chairs and stools can be used as a salon chair, a desk chair, a bar stool, or grouped for a dining set. Each features a mammalian physicality, hand-sculpted and cast in aluminum. The aluminum front legs extend from the chair’s body in a bowed fashion while the back legs are hand carved, rendering each chair unique. The seat and back are shown upholstered in alligator skin. Roskin’s works blend functional design with modernist sculptural references. A natural successor of innovative artists such as Richard Serra, Jean Arp, and Constantin Brancusi, Roskin’s cast bronze, stainless steel, and carved wood works reflects the artist’s modernist and primitive influences. Beginning with a series of quick sketches, Roskin captures the movement of a basic form. By sculpting in foam and wood Roskin translates that movement into a structural model that is then 3D scanned so that it can then be cast in bronze, aluminum or steel, and finished with carved wood elements. His works often feature a mammalian physicality with heaving sinuous forms and legs that extend from the body in a bowed fashion. Rejecting outright anthropomorphic mimicry in favor of subtle, sculpted muscular forms, 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 it is inhaling or ready to make a move. I try to steer clear of the decorative, but rather to draw on mass, volume, line, negative space, and my love of materials and the craft of working with them.” The chairs can be commissioned in aluminum or bronze plated aluminum in a variety of finishes, including mirror polished, brushed, patinated, and rubbed.
