This minimalist collection reflects the structural codes of post-war furniture. In creating this collection, Robert O'Connell focused on sculpting pieces that blur the lines between art and furniture. Through a minimalist aesthetic, O'Connell makes recognizable and abstract pieces that allow the viewer to let the visual story unfold on their own, without the artist revealing it.
O'Connell's recreated abstract versions of post-war furniture through the use of archetypal shapes. To create the minimalist collection, half-inch steel rods were used to form simple designs. The collection, titled 'Standing Objects,' is meant to be a conversation starter and launching off point for the young artist. He regards his work as a communicating bridge that explores the artistic intricacies in designed objects. O'Connell's work will soon debut at the Parisian gallery 'James.'
