Robert F. Lach

Part of the Vanishing Worlds virtual gallery.

Artist Statement:

My work is materials and process driven. The focus is on the labor of craft by experimenting and manipulating everyday objects into art material. I usually build in units or multiples mimicking the biology and structure of living organisms. It is the beauty, organization and simplicity of nature I try to replicate. I create green habitats based on the architecture and anatomy of nature that reference the design, form and structure patterns of the natural world.
