‘Nature has always played very heavily in this imagined world. I use nature in many different degrees of abstraction. When you look at nature from a microscopic scale, carbon and hydrogen bond in these kind of hexagonal, pentagonal structures’ explains American artist and designer David Wiseman.
Known for his large-scale sculptural works that draw inspiration from numerous sources including the natural world and global decorative arts traditions, Wiseman will stage a solo exhibition at Kasmin in March this year. His unique structures range from elaborate folding screens to decorative inlay furniture.
David Wiseman: Plants, Minerals, and Animals will run at at Kasmin, 515 West 27th Street, New York, from March 14 - April 27, 2019.
