Charles Rocco Wire Mesh Sculptures

These intricate sculptures by Charles Rocco are hand-wrought from galvanized wire mesh metal fabric. The transparency of material and openness of construction are intended to imply gossamer shells that subtly dissolve into, rather than dominate, the surrounding space. Originally inspired by the spider’s web, these sculptures whisper their presence; contrasting the paradoxical qualities of frailty and tenuous endurance.
