Frenetic Composure is a body of sculpture work representing the control of chaos. Using cut strips of wood of various lengths and width, the constructed forms are both abstract and figurative, like drawings constructed from wood. The wood strips create the line just as a painter or draftsman uses charcoal or paint to make their mark. Each sculpture has a similar language using layers of line in various degrees of density, creating the frenetic activity represented in the work. The inspiration behind the work is brain activity. The sculpture represents the electrical impulses and activity in the human brain. Robert is a recent Master of Fine Arts graduate from the College of Visual and Performing Arts at UMass Dartmouth.
