LEVI ROBB is a visual artist who lives and works in Des Moines, Iowa.
“Frenetic Pause” is a collection of
site based investigations
concerning rural space and artifact.
It is influenced by human interface with
environment, landscape, and artifact.
Through acts of
printmaking, sculpture, installation and an interaction with locality,
the artist analyzes, manipulates and reinterprets artifacts.
The work emerges as a visual interpretation and record of a continual timeline
with an inherent connection to the past.
It encourages the viewer to take moments of pause from the frenetic existence of the modern day
and observe object and place with a fully immersed presence that speaks to all human senses.
The work will be exhibited in the main gallery and in the Orange Door Studio, an outbuilding close by.
Levi Robb grew up on a small farm in Southeast Iowa, surrounded by vast expanses
of space, dense timberland and the Mississippi River.
This agrarian environment played an important role in shaping him as an artist and designer,
and the way he visually sees and perceives surroundings.
Robb has a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Iowa State University
and has spent periods of time living in the Southwest United States and Rome, Italy.
His work has been exhibited in New York City and throughout the Midwest,
and is in both public and private collections.
The exhibit is made possible through the generous sponsorship of
