Brooklyn-born contemporary artist Rodger Stevens has sent me images of his truly creative and poetic wire sculptures. Rodger is a sculptor in New York. For about fifteen years he’s been working primarily with wire and occasionally with wood and other materials to create objects for galleries, museums, architects, interior designers, magazines and clients of all kinds.
Have a look at this fab video featuring the talented artist and his creative process.
Rodger Stevens was born in Brooklyn, New York, and studied at the Parsons School of Design (NYC) and the School of Visual Arts (NYC). His sculptures, installations, and drawings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in New York, California, Paris and elsewhere since 1993.
