Robert Orchardson crafts elegant architectonic sculptures and installations inspired by modernist architecture, futuristic design, utopian manifestos, set designs, and science fiction. Like the sources upon which it is based, his work is composed of clean lines and geometric forms. He has built openwork, Op Art walls; pinwheel-like forms that hug the ground upon which they sit; and intimate individual works in homage to Isamu Noguchi and Eero Saarinen. For Orchardson, the meaning of his sculptures lies in their dialogue with the ideas, artists, and movements they reference, and in the formal and conceptual relationships between them. As he describes: “The focus lies not just on what you see in front of you, but also in the relationships and dialogue that occurs between the works, where the individual artworks might be seen to operate together as separate parts of a whole.”
