The ceramic sculptures by Ken Baskin are influenced by the architecture of factories and industrial machinery - on an exaggerated scale.

Burroughs-Simon B. Chapin Art Museum (SC) and the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft. His work is in the collections of Blue Cross/Blue Shield (MI), College for Creative Studies (MI) and Oakland Community College (MI).

 

 

KENNETH BASKIN Statement

"The investigative properties of the 20th Century Artifact series are focused upon the mechanical objects or artifacts derived from the advent of the industrial revolution. Within this current body of work I am exploring the integration of actual and abstracted machine parts into homologous interrelationships. Metaphorically, my sculptures reflect aspects of these interrelations through: balance and instability, domination and submission, tension and ease, opposition and compromise. It is through this dynamic of push and pull, give and take, that the spontaneity and structuring of these interactions takes place."
