About My Business:

 

Aaron Kramer’s sculptures take the forms of vessels, gourds and spheres. The timeless simplicity of their shapes belies the complexity of their origins and fabrication. Kramer’s sculptures are made from found materials. The metal is the shed bristles from street sweepers, the wood comes from salad bowls, or hardwoods reclaimed from the landfill and sawn into veneers. Everything is painstakingly collected and the seemingly banal materials are re-fashioned to create classic sculptural forms. Kramer’s motto, “Trash is a failure of the imagination”, was arrived at during a year-long bicycle haul across the USA. The gritty, grass roots experience was enlivened by the fascinating ephemera picked up along the way. Each item was a routine part of life, completely overlooked but redolent of its place and time. Realizing the possibilities contained in these fragments became Kramer’s practice. His skill in refocusing materials is one of the pleasures to be found in Kramer’s work. His groupings of pieces can suggest a flotilla of small ships, the spheres of antique orreries, or a colony of weaverbirds. Yet the materials remain true to their origins, unfinished, merely woven or welded. Kramer’s ability to see intrinsic value in the commonplace elevates his materials, giving his work added interest and integrity. www.urban-objects.com
