INSPIRATION: RY ROCKLEN









Ry Rocklen's sculptures are so simple, but so strong, and that's why I love them. Originally from California, Rocklen has a seriously long portfolio of exhibitions and degrees, with a Masters in Sculpture from University of Southern California and being included in collections at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoCA in Los Angeles. I think what I love most about his sculptures is that they look like objects that you could come across if you were exploring a magic forest, they're like trees or rocks or maybe a mattress or flag that was left there, but they have so much more character, from being adorned with recording tape, covered with shimmering tiles, they're each like an alien version of things that are fairly everyday here on earth.
