Artist Statement

Much of Robert’s recent work inhabits the space between Constructivism and the Readymade. It is a direct result of skills practiced as a cabinet maker/carpenter and thought processes developed in a furniture manufacturing workshop. His creative impulses are transmuted from the restrictive functional design, labour intensive everyday environment into the free space inhabited by fine art.
Preferring to go for the bold statement without embellishment, Robert uses the natural condition of materials found and manufactured to hint at hidden beauty. Juxtaposing slick presentation with dirt-encrusted decay, decorations from natural processes take centre stage.
Objects destined for the skip become icons of immeasurable value. The overlooked become precious. Offcuts become the rescued fragments of an abstract jigsaw.
