People provide me with endless inspiration. Our motivations, beliefs, opinions and perspectives are infinite.  For every layer peeled away, there is always another below it. I am interested in the human connection created when looking into someone’s eyes.  Why is it that it’s difficult to look directly into someone’s eyes and lie?  Why do I divert my gaze if I’m not feeling confident?  And why is it more intense to look directly into someone’s eyes and say, “I love you?”

“Edye” is a 3 dimensional wall sculpture that has been printed and painted using a acrylic and a digitally simulated multiple exposure process I’ve developed.

I began by taking close up photographs of my friend’s eyes.  By overexposing the photos, the lines of her face and the shape of her mouth, other facial cues disappeared.  In stripping away that context, I found that her naked eyes revealed a sense of intensity, mystery and character.

As a musician, Rob was signed to RCA Records before his 21st birthday. He began writing songs after his parents divorced at age 16, and found himself on a wild ride of making albums, videos, touring and appearing on MTV at a young age. He experienced first hand the transformative potential of creativity. During days off on tour, while his bandmates were sightseeing or at local malls, he visited museums. His interest in visual art never dwindled. He continued to hone his practice during downtime, and began pursuing visual art full time after his layered transparency cd covers began garnering attention. Rob showed at SCOPE in Miami in 2017, exhibits internationally, and his work hangs in the San Francisco Airport, The Avedis Zildjian Company in Boston, and the Griffin Club in Los Angeles among others. In addition to his art practice, he gave a TEDx Talk in Culver City, CA about authenticity in art and following our internal muse. He also speaks to students in schools about the importance of learning to think creatively not only in making art, but how it relates to solving problems in our culture and society.
