Rob Lorenson

The methodology behind my work is to create a compositionally rich interplay of modernist elements that are exceptionally crafted to remove the hand of the artist. The purpose of this is to further emphasize the compositional qualities of the work. I also intend to make the work look manufactured, as though it was itself an industrial product, like the industrial forms that originally influenced it.

Much of my work comes from an intrigue with forms precariously placed in space. This comes from playing with blocks as a child and continues as I build with blocks with my daughter on our living room floor. There is potential in this precariousness. The parts could potentially collapse. So the sculpture is perhaps a moment in time welded in place permanently but yet representing a specific moment.
