Askew, North Carolina Art Museum

Askew is a 46′ tall sculpture by American artist Roxy Paine.  Paine uses industrial  materials, in this case steel, to create sculptures that seem to have sprung from nature, albeit with a twist.

Askew is a part of Paine’s series called “Dendroids.”  After extensive research on how trees grow, and based on a language he invented that describes how these trees “grow”, the artist assembles the Dendroids from steel.  The effect is quite striking.  The sculpture, while obviously man-made, feels natural in the way the branches reach out from the trunk.  It’s fascinating to see birds perched on the branches of the sculpture, as if it were a real tree.
