Several new sculptures by Steve Novick in his Studio

Novick uses an additive process combining disparate flanges, escutcheons and housings into a new hybrid of an ambiguous type. Novick creates sculptures which look familiar, perched on shelves and often at the scale that references an appliance, but with no cord or function ( in the hardware store sense of the word ). The artist substitutes smooth, rounded volumes, gleaming with visual clarity in the place of a handy kitchen use. The transformation from functional object to aesthetic object is convincing and builds upon the residue of a previous design style and purpose that the individual chrome, rubber, felt and brass elements effortlessly transcend as a whole.
