Robin Rose

Conversations with Artists

April 15, 2021, 6:30-8 pm

Robin Rose creates works in encaustic mixed with pigment and wax using subtle hues to produce his subtle abstractions. His so-called Scriptronics are drawings created on brown paper with a black marker connected by wire to a CD recorder.  As he draws on the paper, sounds emanate from speakers. The texture of the paper and the amount of pressure applied while drawing determined the sound being recorded and played back. Rose sees his Scriptronics not only as a means of expression for artists but also as a potential therapeutic tool for the autistic and those with dementia.

He will be joined in conversation by Vesela Sretenović, the Phillips’s Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.
