Robert Fogel is best known for his wall sculptures suggestive of geologic and natural formations, while also maintaining their non-representational mystery. Subjects originate from his experience as a biologist surveying the Intermountain West for truffles. A beautiful line strikes a chord within him as do the contrast of colors and the harmonious arrangement of forms within an image. The power of a lines and forms in his sculptures is enhanced by stripping away superfluous detail. The differences in component heights in his shaped painting and sculptures creates ever-changing shadows that enhance the definition of lines and the shape of forms. The intent is to create visual interest and perhaps trigger memories of places visited.
