Artist Review: Allan Wexler

Allan Wexler is an architect who also works in the fields of design and fine art. Wexler's works explore the community, as well as human activity. He designs furnitures, buildings, and even utensils as props for everyday human activity. His idea is to elevate human's daily lives. I find his works unconventional and very functional for everyday lives, which is something I would like to make. In one of his work,
Two Too Large Tables, he creates two elements in one piece. In the first part, he uses stainless steel and wood to construct an odd looking shaped table and thirteen chairs. In the second part, he uses thirteen chairs to extend up to become columns. The columns support a large stainless steel plane, which function as a shade. Wexler's work is located at Hudson River Park at 29th Street in New York City. I think this piece says a lot about his ideas.
