Fleur-de-lis Table Lamp III, USA
True to form, Alex Roskin’s LED sculptural lamp, in brass and marble, has the same perfectly proportioned curves as his unique bronze and steel furniture pieces. Internal LEDs bounce off of the marble, giving the work a warm, glow that punctuates its smooth, curvilinear lines.
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.
