Robert Lansden b. 1959 - Obsessive and painstakingly composed line drawings, in gouache and ink on paper, are explorations into the unknown. Each work, which is based on an algorithm, or step by step set of operations, is entered into without a defined outcome. Each web-like pattern, whether it resembles creases in fabric, floral motifs, or more abstract endeavors in geometry, is a patient and tenuous tangle of time, chance and ambiguity.
Robert Lansden lives and works in Norwalk, CT. He received his Bachelor of Fine Art from the Atlanta College of Art in 1989, a Master of Library Science from Palmer School of Library & Information Science in New York, NY in 1999 and a Master of Fine Art from Tulane University in 2005. His work has been exhibited throughout the US including the Nexus Center for Contemporary Art, Atlanta, Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock, AR the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, and the Kentler International Drawing Space, Brooklyn, NY, among others.
