Christopher Georgesco is a self-taught artist whose home and studio are in the Coachella Valley. The son of a prominent modern architect, Georgesco was influenced by the materials he saw on his father’s construction sites including wood, concrete, and steel.

He strives for the elegant simplicity of modernism in his works and states, “Modernism. I eat it, drink it, open it, close it, tear it, cut it, weld it, paint it.

In this sculpture, he is exploring the idea of activating space through an artistic interpretation of geometry.
