Rob’s piece is Acrylic paint on panel. It measures 11 inches by 14 inches.

Rob received his BFA from Towson University and MFA at New York Academy of Art. His current work is heavily anchored in the concepts of identity and perception. He explores these concepts from the perspective of a child or young adult in nature settings or urban environments. These characters will usually wear masks, headdresses and armor that take the form of various animals, monsters and fictional characters. The masks/headdresses in combination with the figures are stand ins for the various stigmas/stereotypes that we use as tools for social engineering. This body of work is geared at conveying how the masks can also be a reflection of the person wearing them to a point where they function as camouflage, armor, and most important a Sanctuary.
