ROBERT LOBE

When looking for Benglis work in a book about the exhibition "Anti Illusion: Procedures/Materials", Whitney Musem of American Art, New York I discovered this artists work. It was his early work that particularly intrigued me because of his use of string which reminded me of mops. His recent work has a larger focus on nature. This is seen by the use of found objects like trees and leaves. (24) Listening to an interview with him (25), I learnt a technique called repousse - hammering into the reverse of something.
