About

Flying Alinga Double Jump, smoke on paper, framed on a contemporary box frame - all archival materials. Artwork size: 40x30 inches Frame size: 48x37x2.5 inches Frame style: black wood box frame, UV glass, archival matboard The Smokes consist of images that are created by capturing smoke on paper as evidence of a transformation and preservation of the ephemeral. During the process, credit cards, gift cards, photos, and even slides of the artists’ artwork are burned to remove their growing presence in daily life, and explore the idea of transformation. In 2014, Rob was awarded the John Ringling Towers Visual Artist Grant by the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota. In 2009, he was awarded a fellowship at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts.

His collections include: The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia (December, 2013), Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, Orlando, FL, St. Regis in Washington DC, and Four Seasons Hotel in Houston, Texas.
