R. L. Croft : Impromptu Sculpture-in-the-Wild and Studio Sculptures

 
Impromptu Sculpture-in-the-Wild and Studio SculpturesWhether in the studio, hiking through the woods, or roaming a beach, R. L. Croft makes sculptural drawings that contrast the angst of life under siege with fleeting moments of peaceful introspection. An art world shunpiker by nature, Robin’s work weaves subtle metaphors into images of fragmented construction. The viewer is likely to discover anxiety and delight within the same sculpture. In a sense, his efforts parallel naive art by avoiding prevailing trends and building upon rugged drawing guided by intuition.

After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University with a painting degree, he immediately entered upon a 12-year abstention from self-promotion, exhibition, and competition in order to discover a path to making art with true originality. This austere beginning to a career normally associated with heavy marketing and networking was a radical move to assert independence from what he saw as an art world more interested in façade than integrity. 

Though a fine artist by education, Robin made a peripatetic living for over 20 years in illustration, graphic design, and art direction as a way to support his concurrent studio efforts. He exhibits regionally and welcomes discussion of exhibition opportunities, as well as invitations to lead groups in the creation of “impromptu” drawings. Robin lives with his wife and two girls in the Washington, D.C. area.

Should we simply allow men to internalize the social costs of their delinquency by letting the chips fall where they may? ,
