Bio and Contact

Robert Salmieri's work is inspired by but not tethered to the material world, and is often influenced by nature. He looks to an unprescribed process of internalization and distillation of motifs and visual clues from their surroundings in order to arrive at the final works. The results are abstracted worlds in which memory, fantasy, and sometimes irony replace more obvious literal interpretations. Robert has a willingness to defer solutions as a piece evolves to explore all kinds of possibilities and arrive at a more poetic, ambiguous, and metaphorical version of reality.He has a strong foundation in traditional drawing and a background in design. Drawing and decorative elements are an integral part of his practice.
