MFA ’14 Fine Arts Low-Residency
Robert Maloney’s constructions and mixed media prints incorporate elements of the urban landscape, typography, topography and architecture. Many of his pieces straddle the line between a structure being torn down and a structure being erected. He mines the vocabulary of the urban landscape to create imagery that evokes the feeling of crumbling walls, discarded billboards and deteriorated warehouse buildings. Robert likes to think of his work as a 21st century archeological dig where decades of imagery and information accumulate and deteriorate at various stages of recognition. He combines layers of found and created textures, screen-printed patterns, digital elements and three dimensional structures to create works that evoke the passing of time.
