Head down to the Marlborough – there’s loads to see sphere!
Lars Fisk, a New York based sculptor who explores the sphere as a formal device for reframing everyday objects, is bringing his very first solo exhibition to London in February.
For Fisk, the sphere is a ‘standardised uniform’ and a form that is ‘universally understood’, so he has consistently chosen to work alongside it. Basically, he makes stuff round. And to be honest, we think it’s pretty cool.
Creating sculptures that are all made from scratch and crafted from the actual materials of their subject, his work is both striking and really quite charming. Fisk’s incredible transformation of everyday objects into giant spherical installations feels entertaining and lighthearted, while also drawing attention to the subjects’ design, construction and craftsmanship.
Each of his sculptures remain incredibly original as they incorporate decorative elements that break free from the spherical structure and establish their own unique deviations. With several structures including intricate extras like thatching, knot-tying, upholstery and brass work, it’s no wonder that Fisk’s work is so widely admired.
By now you should be feeling fully up to speed, and admittedly, a little bit intrigued about this Fisk bloke and his strange spherical obsession.
So we think now would be a good time to tell you that London’s Marlborough Gallery will be presenting eight of Fisk’s brand-new works. From February 4 to March 14, you can pop along to Albemarle Street and admire some of these amazing installations. A great way to round off your day!
