My work is materials and process driven. The focus is on the labor of craft by experimenting and manipulating everyday objects into art material. I usually build in units or multiples mimicking the biology and structure of living organisms. It is the beauty, organization, and simplicity of nature I try to replicate. I create green habitats based on the architecture and anatomy of nature that reference the design, form and structure patterns of natural world
Born and raised in Northern New Jersey, Robert is a multidisciplinary artist who graduated from New Jersey City University with a BFA in sculpture. The local landscape inspires and fuels his art practice – from the state’s post-industrial north to the beauty of its southern wildlife areas and beaches. Found objects, recycled materials, and gathered detritus from various environments are muse for sculpture, photography, installation, and public art projects. Public art projects have included the Atlantic sculpture park in Atlantic City and The Gateway Project in Newark, NJ. The artist has participated in residencies at Elsewhere in Greenboro, NC, ESKFF at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ, Solo(s) Project House in Newark, and I-Park in CT.
