ROBLES THOUGHTS ON FUTURESPECTIVE
I'm excited to show with artists whose work I like. I'm gonna be showing these new "floater" pieces. I'm in the first stages of this body of work. They're bubble like forms made from acrylic and maple wood...It's the idea of a form that's changing, like glass taking shape where what would be behind it is absent, bending the laws of nature. The idea is derived from the floaters that everyone sees on the outer shell of their eye, that constantly changing transparent shape, usually worm-like. I'm making them 3 dimensional, and trying to capture the organic shape of a soap bubble at the same time."
"I like the negative space and embracing the minimal quality, even though it's a complex form that's very carefully made. It's an exploration that's still unfolding. I work backwards. I build the frame and then I think of what's going to go in it. I build a boundary, then go into the playground and get loose."
