About the Artist: Rodger Stevens
Rodger Stevens is a New York–based sculptor whose work has been exhibited internationally and can be found in public as well as private collections. He was born in Brooklyn, New York and studied at Pace University (NYC), the Parsons School of Design (NYC), and the School of Visual Arts (NYC). Following his recent four-month residency at The Museum of Arts and Design in New York, he began designing jewelry informed by his sculptural work. His jewelry, including necklaces, bracelets, and rings, is on display at the exhibition along with several works of sculpture.
About the Art
Those familiar with Stevens' work will recognize his signature linear forms reimagined as wearable sculpture in his jewelry collection. In both sculpture and jewelry, Stevens utilizes simple methods of hammering, riveting, and hand-forming to create eye-catching, energetic pieces of art. His interests in mathematics, language, literature, human physiology, and personal experience are embodied in these delicate and meticulously engineered objects. As aesthetic as it is conceptual, Stevens’ artwork captures the viewer’s attention with its fluidity, elegance, and balance.
Praise for Rodger Stevens
The New York Times called Stevens’ show at Kinder Modern gallery during Design Week in New York a “must-see destination,” and Architectural Digest also included the exhibition as one of the best installations of Design Week. Stevens’ jewelry will soon be featured in an upcoming “French Surrealism” shoot from Vogue magazine. In addition, Stevens’ work has been commissioned by MTV, Starbucks, Nike, The Whitney Museum of Art, The American Folk Art Museum, The Katonah Museum, The Bristol Museum, The New York Children's Museum of Art, The Hangaram Museum of Art in Seoul, PS1, Barney's, Sotheby’s, David Rockwell, Jonathan Adler, Todd Oldham, and Yohji Yamamoto, among others.
