Roxy Paine
American, b. 1966
Follow

Since 1989, Roxy Paine has been filling galleries, museums, and sites worldwide with his dark, whimsical installations and sculptures, melding the industrial and the organic to explore manmade and natural systems—and their ramifications. As he describes: “I’m skeptical about the potential for horrible consequences, consistently realized. But at the same time we are able to feed six billion people through science and altering nature. That’s kind of a miracle.” Paine divides his work into categories: “Art Making Machines,” mad-scientist mini-factories that produce works of art; “Replicants,” replicas of flora and fungi made out of industrial materials; “Fungal Fields,” painterly compositions of his fungi sculptures; “Specimen Cases,” vitrines filled with his fungal and floral replicas; and “Dendroids,” stainless-steel forms resembling trees and the nervous system. Through these industrial-natural visions, Paine reveals the horror and wonder when science and nature collide.
