Robert Greene

"I am an artist with one foot in the studio and one foot outside in the mud. I work in a variety of mediums including outdoor and site specific.

My work deals primarily with the human condition (Life, death, figurative, abstract figurative and psychological).

The material I am most drawn to is wood. Wood is familiar and warm. It can be rendered and shaped in countless ways or left natural to express the already inherent beauty and characteristics it possesses.

A fellow artist once told me, 'Follow your dreams; if you don’t you will never know true happiness. If you don’t attempt to do what you were made to do, then you are denying the gifts given to you.' I am a maker who took his words to heart."
