Art in the Environment

Robert L. Greene Artwork

Professor Robert L. Greene is exhibiting work at the Deedee Shattuck Gallery in Westport, Massachusetts. The exhibition is from October 16th–November 30, 2013.

This exhibition is designed to bring Art to the environment and provide visitors with opportunities to experience nature and art in new ways. Whether in the open landscape or along the newly developed sculpture path in the woods, to the artist, it offers challenging opportunities to experiment, to explore their art on expanded scale and create sculpture for an environment.

Professor Greene’s work has to do with the fragmented figure and creating order from chaos. His pieces are intended to weather with time and will eventually turn grey and blend with the environment. For more information please visit the gallery site.

Professor Robert Greene is Assistant Professor of Sculpture.

“Frenetic Composure” by Robert L. Greene

Robert Greene Hive

Frenetic Composure is a body of sculpture work representing the control of chaos. Using cut strips of wood of various lengths and width, the constructed forms are both abstract and figurative, like drawings constructed from wood. The wood strips create the line just as a painter or draftsman uses charcoal or paint to make their mark. Each sculpture has a similar language using layers of line in various degrees of density, creating the frenetic activity represented in the work. The inspiration behind the work is brain activity. The sculpture represents the electrical impulses and activity in the human brain. Robert is a recent Master of Fine Arts graduate from the College of Visual and Performing Arts at UMass Dartmouth.

Artist Reception: October 2, 4 – 5 pm in the University Gallery
Artist Talk to precede the reception in O’Leary Library Learning Commons, Room 222. 3 – 4 pm

For questions, please contact Leah Craig, Gallery Coordinator, at Leah_Craig@uml.edu or 978.934.3491.
