Rock music inspired sculptures by Ross Eken

I was really attracted to Rose Eken’s sculptures at Art Copenhagen Art Fair. Eken (re)constructs scenarios borrowed from rock music and culture. But rather than creating faithful copies, her works play with scale and proportions to distort reality with tiny cardboard models or glazed ceramic. They are clearly handmade, a combination of meticulous craftsmanship with a amateurish DIY style. But that is their beauty: portraying the rebellious rock culture so zealously and with such atypical materials.

About the author

A love of traveling, art, and denim saw this Brit native mix them all up. The result was art crafted from denim and a new home in Sweden. Even though he once lived in Australia and never rode a wave, Denimu is only slightly better with a keyboard and likes to write about the things he has seen on his travels and the people he meets along the way.
