Rob Wynne: Visiting Artist

Last Wednesday Rob Wynne gave a lecture as part of the Laurie Wagman Lecture Series. He gave us a brief overview of his extensive body of work starting with some early text based works from the 70’s. He showed a range of work from installations of poured glass text to delicate sewn imagery done with glass beads on vellum. As he spoke I found myself busy writing down quotes that emerge in his work. For example he described himself as a “deranged editor flying over the landscape” and stated, “a beautiful sound alone is not enough. He gave us simple words of wisdom for our creative process: you must “Black out and trust it” and “give yourself permission.”

Thank you, Rob, for an inspiring lecture and sharing your words, experiences, and work with us.
