About the artist
Rocklen has altered the materials, in subtle but profound ways giving these objects a second life as sculpture of astonishing reﬁnement. These compositions — poetic, slightly surreal and treading the line of the readymade — employ humble materials to engage in a formal exploration of sculptural properties. The three general criteria Rocklen has for choosing an object as a sculpture are the following: 1. In its prime the object was experienced habitually. 2. The object was then abandoned. 3. The object is more or less culturally universal. Born in 1978 in Los Angeles, Ry Rocklen still lives and works there.
