“My first sculpture was inspired by two shadows on a wall. It was the beginning of a lifelong exploration of the relationship between seemingly unrelated forms and the connectivity or manifestation of the space between them; the juxtaposition of opposing forces creating another form altogether.”
Robert has been sculpting and involved in the creative aspects of the art world for many years. As President of Meyer Design Associates, he created award winning annual reports and corporate communications for Fortune 500 companies throughout the Northeast, Florida and Chicago.
He was juried into the Silvermine Guild of Artists in 1992 and has devoted his creative energies exclusively to sculpture since 1998. He spent three months sculpting at Studio Sem in Pietrasanta, Italy, working in marble and terra cotta. Since returning from Italy, he has completed four commissions for Quinnipiac University and shown his sculpture in group and solo shows in New York and Connecticut. His sculpture is in the collection of the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, New York and in corporate, institutional and private collections throughout the northeast.
He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Colorado and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Rochester Insitute of Technology. He is a past Trustee of the Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan, CT and a Founding Member of the Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center.
“All of Meyer’s works… set up a dialogue between parts and wholes, masses and volumes, surfaces and their scars. …These are works of graphic purity and tactile richness at the same time. …As much as his work “discovers” affinities to nature, to architecture, to symbol, and to narrative, its most persuasive attribute is its capacity for touch.”
