Artists in Time of Covid:
A Profile of Sculptor Robert Meyer
During these times of social distancing and closed businesses, we at Handwright Gallery turned to our artists to ask them, “How are you approaching your artwork during this time?” We wanted you to get to know the real-people behind the artwork. Our third profile is of Connecticut based bronze and steel sculptor Robert Meyer.
“At first being forced to stay home was very productive, as ideas and concepts that had been in my head and my sketchbooks easily became reality. Then I hit a wall.
One would think that endless time with no interruptions would give way to a stream of creativity. Surprisingly, at least for me, the opposite is true. I find myself “hiding out” in books and old movies as an escape from reality. My creative impulses seem to have shut down along with the outside world. With no external stimulation, I have had to turn inward for inspiration and push the boundaries of my work to explore new spacial concepts, combinations, materials
and dimensions, discovering previously untapped inspiration.”
