What connects Robert to his material? Usually a piece of rope as thick as your index finger. Working at height as an arborist for over a decade, studying, climbing and being in contact with wood in its rawest form – day in, day out and come rain or shine gives him a unique
relationship with the work he creates.
Provenance is at the heart of every piece, the journey from camaraderie and brilliant teamwork on site to insular and meditative in the studio is encapsulated in his work and self-taught methods of working- following intuition and reflecting upon his own experience of
how his material presented itself to him and how this may be perceived in the wider world.
