Roman Makše


From Here To Here / Forma viva 2008

steel, stainless steel, bars / Čečovje Neighbourhood, Ravne
The monumental composition by Roman Makše has become part of the arrangement of the new central square in the residential neighbourhood of Čečovje, and with it, again – as already in the work created on the occasion of relaunching the symposium in Kostanjevica in 1998 – the artist opens up the field of the status of sculptural organism and sculptural space, this time in a provocative combination of different metallic materials. The experience of the bipartite composition is distinctly ambient-based, for the silhouette and the contours of the sculptural intervention merge with the surfaces of the park surrounding the work.

Roman Makše was born in 1963 in Ljubljana. He studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana under the supervision of Prof Drago Tršar, Prof Dušan Tršar and Prof Lujo Vodopivec. He graduated in 1989, and completed his postgraduate studies in 1994. Since 2001, he has been teaching sculpture in the Department of Art Pedagogy at the Faculty of Education in Ljubljana, where he became Full Professor in 2011. From 2004 to 2012, he managed the PeF Gallery at the Faculty of Education in Ljubljana. His works have been included in numerous shows in Slovenia as well as in the area of the former Yugoslavia, in Austria, Italy, Germany, Lithuania, the Netherlands, and the USA. His works are included in collections in Slovenia and abroad, and he has also completed several permanent open-air sculptures. He has received several awards, including the 1994 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award in New York. He is a member of the international Sculpture Network. He lives and works in Ljubljana.
