Credo Quia Absurdum: New Work by Rob Neilson

 Rob Neilson,  The Trinity , MDF and milk paint, 24” x 26” x 14”, 2016 – 2017

Rob Neilson, The Trinity, MDF and milk paint, 24” x 26” x 14”, 2016 – 2017

In this new body of sculptural works, Rob Neilson concentrates on the exchange between the idiosyncratic and collective connotations borrowed from the individuals depicted. Exploiting the traditional genre of the portraiture bust in a way which combines iconography and incongruity, Neilson creates art constructed from layered MDF (medium density fiberboard) and finished with handmade milk paint to consider the space where the iconic encounters the absurd.
