Robert Lobe

Hiro Fine Art is interested in purchasing artworks by Robert Lobe.

Robert Lobe is an American sculptor, born in Detroit in 1945. He grew up in Cleveland and studied at Oberlin College in Ohio before pursuing graduate studies in New York. His interest in the fusion of organic and man-made forms has lead to work centered on providing aluminum skins for trees and rocks. Lobe works outdoors and utilizes hand and power tools to hammer the sheets into place, which allows for mistakes. Artificiality is intentional through the muted texture and metallic sheen, along with the cropped form and its removal from nature. Lobe’s examination of nature and technology expresses the created human alienation from our environment.
