The stainless steel and aluminum sculptures created by Massachusetts artist, Rob Lorenson are a compositionally rich interplay of formalist elements. They exist in suspended animation and are situated to freeze a moment in time; hovering effortlessly in space. The work is constructed of sturdy, permanent materials but lives in contradiction to the impermanent sense of the composition. He strives to emphasize the compositional qualities of the work, to create dynamic movement with static, solid objects. Lorenson received his BFA from the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, and an MFA from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. Since 1999 he has lived and taught sculpture in southeastern Massachusetts. His works have been included in a number of exhibitions including Pierwalk in Chicago, The Sarasota Season Of Sculpture and the Convergence International Arts Festival in Providence, RI. His sculptures are included in numerous public and private collections from small tabletop pieces to 20′ large-scale sculptures.
