After a massive stroke in 2004, it was Robb's artwork that brought him back to life. Unable to communicate with words, Kevin accesses his right brain to create sophisticated stainless steel sculpture.
SANTA FE, NM, July 31, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Pippin Contemporary is proud to be exhibiting Kevin Robb's stainless steel sculpture on the corner of Canyon Road and Paseo de Peralta in downtown Santa Fe.
Kevin Robb literally lives to create. After a massive stroke in 2004, his wife and daughter, Diane and Kelsey supported him with their love, yet it was his artwork that brought Robb back to life. Unable to communicate with words, Kevin now accesses his right brain to create beautiful lines and visual movement in sophisticated sculpture. Daily in his studio, Kevin creates artwork that he loves. Hiring studio assistants to be his hands in the physical work of welding, cutting, and grinding, he oversees every cut, bend, and assemblage of the metal. His ideas are free flowing and he is committed as ever to excellence.
"I don't create my monumental metal sculptures according to a set plan. The placement of each element is an answer to a question of relationships, which I discover as the work is in progress. I become one with the metal and intuitively know the precise twists and turns that will be required to achieve the desired result of a dynamic contemporary sculpture."
Robb has placed permanent sculpture Internationally (Mexico, Canada, France, Australia) and throughout the United States. Major projects include a 30-foot sculpture in San Diego, California, 6 major sculptures at the Borgata Casino and Spa, Atlantic City, New Jersey; CSG International Headquarters, Omaha, Nebraska, and Groveland Terrace in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Public art projects include an 18-foot sculpture at the Azle Memorial Library, Azle, Texas; Cities of Edmond, Oklahoma; Little Rock, Arkansas; Wheat Ridge, Colorado; Keller, Texas, and Greenwich, Connecticut. Robb's work is collected by numerous universities and museums, including the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio and the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Kevin Robb offers a resolve to his artwork that is a physical testament to the dedication, expertise, and amazing recovery of a remarkable artist and person.
