Levi Robbâ€™s work explores the entanglement of person and context â€” time and atmosphere. With a focus on the formal objectivity of place, the work is influenced by human interface with environment, landscape, and artifact. Through acts of printmaking, sculpture, installation and an interaction with locality the work emerges, a visual interpretation and record of an act in context.
The emanation of the work embodies a dichotomy between permanent and impermanent objects and mark making. Human relationship with site based artifacts, and the interrelationship between the material and immaterial, are often common underlying themes throughout his work. Through the analysis, manipulation and reinterpretation of latent items and specific spatial conditions the work takes on a continual timeline with an inherent connection to the past. This process yields a unique body of formal objects that concretize the idea of contemporary relics.
His work has been exhibited in New York City and throughout the Midwest, and is in both public and private collections.
