Robert Dennis

steel, stone

“Since I was a child I have been drawn to the natural shapes, textures, and colors of rocks and by the ability to shape and form metal. All metals originate in rocks and when working with those two elements I play with the juxtaposition and balance of their connection. Both materials are bound together either through design, application, or physical form. Although both share a natural source, their individual basic properties are not compatible. Through my art I attempt to show a common bond between the two whether it be mimicking an organic shape, implied movement, or the merging of the two elements back into one. All metal components are individually shaped or altered to suit the characteristics of the rock it will be part of. I want to reveal an alternative perspective between metal and stone providing the viewer with a unique visual experience.”
