His sculpture, Frenetic Composure, was chosen by designer Thom Filicia for his room in the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, “the spring rite at which designers prove their mettle.” The exhibition is on display at the Arthur Sachs Mansion in New York City.

MAC Spotlights Robert Greene’s Intriguing Work by Karen Barthelson
Robert Greene’s solo exhibit , Frenetic Composure, represents his interest in the figure and is inspired by as he states, “…the activity of the human mind…” and “…deals primarily with the human condition…”
What drew me to Robert’s work and what I found so surprising is how his pieces, while made of sticks of wood, manage to have an organic feel to them, particularly the figures. The figure stands still while the wood pieces forming the figure appear to be moving in various directions, giving it a frantic energy.
Robert lives in Ledyard, Connecticut and currently teaches at Eastern Connecticut State University, Willimantic, CT where he received his undergraduate degree in sculpture in 2006. He went on to earn his MFA in sculpture at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in North Dartmouth, MA in 2010, and stayed to teach in the 3D department for two years until 2012.
Robert has been gaining some recognition exhibiting mostly in Connecticut and Massachusetts. He has won awards, has works in many private collections and was mentioned in a Boston Globe article “Stand Out Students” in 2013.
While active with his own work at his Ledyard studio and at the Noank Foundry, Robert also enjoys teaching. He explained “…everybody has the creative potential; there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student’s excitement when they discover exactly what they can make with their own hands…”.
Rob’s solo sculpture exhibition Frenetic Composure reception is January 16 from 5:30-7:30 at the Mystic Arts Center.
Fall 2014 Design Group students created five billboards celebrating Eastern’s 125 year history. Standish Johnson Outdoor Advertising donated billboard space and installation. Each billboard represents 25 years of Eastern’s story with yearbook photos against a backdrop of the architecture of that period.
