Bob, your artwork is very varied anddoesn’tseem to follow a theme! Why?


I have a short attention span and am easily bored. I resist churning out multiple artworks that look alike.


My DECLARATION of ARTISTIC FREEDOM enables me to investigate many themes and ideas that come from myths, dreams, contradictions, symbolism, humor and other aspects of the human condition. I use the formal qualities of line, shape, texture, rhythm, and balance to deal with the juxtaposition of disparate elements to create new meaning. If itdoesn’thave meaning for me – I ÷m not interested in doing it!
