About the Author:
Since graduating from Santa Clara University, Robert has been fascinated by the human condition and forces that drive mindful change. Even when the study of quantum physics was in its infancy, Robert recognized a powerful connection between living and inanimate matter, stimulating growth and decay in both. Seeking answers about what causes change, growth and creativity, his fascination evolved into an exploration of the generative process of the universe, explained in his book: Quantum Sense, How to Ally with Change, Growth, and Creativity.
About the Artist:
Robert began painting to discover ways in which language could coalesce with visual composition to achieve a higher form of expression. Encompassing the abstract, conceptual and figurative, much of Robert’s work deals with the changing face of nature and the human condition. In 2007, Robert began mixing transformational elements such as fire, with more conventional mediums, such as oils, inks and acrylics to create lasting impressions of transient nature. Given his affinity for transitional mediums, his reverence for all aspects of nature and his desire to celebrate life, in 2010, Robert began merging cremated ashes into memorial art to create posthumous monuments.
Robert is represented by Saatchi gallery and his work has been shown in the Oceanside Museum of Art and through selected solo and group exhibitions and art events in New York City, Houston, San Diego and other locations. He now divides his studio time between conventional and memorial commissions and championing ways to improve quality of life using the power of creativity.
