harry roseman’s draped and folded plywood

Knowing how much we love plywood —we’ve used it throughout the Laboratory as floors, window sills, shelves — Maria Robledo sent us an image of artist Harry Roseman‘s draped and folded plywood sculptures. Roseman turns plywood into art for its own sake, and shows us a whole other realm of possibility for this uniquitous material. Here, elegantly folded plwyood looks like its dripping off a wall:

…What’s curious is to us is how Roseman has managed to soften this classically rough, simple material.

…That with just a few cuts, he’s transformed it into something that seems malleable and fabric-like.

Here’s a whole folio of Roseman’s inspired plywood.

 

Thanks Maria!
