Celestial Bursts by Robert Swedroe


Robert Swedroe

As a young architect, Robert Swedroe emerged upon the art scene in 1963 with the first of eight consecutive one-man shows from Miami Beach to New York. Over the next decade, his creation of collages numbered into the hundreds, earning both critical acclaim and a succession of sold-out exhibitions. The visionary eye of the artist informed his commercial, grand-scale designs with greater depth and attention to detail. His professional mastery of structure, form and balance contributed a sense of proportion and discipline to his collage and assemblage work. Recently this interplay of design aesthetics culminated in an entirely new series of multimedia constructions; one that reflects Robert’s personal vision of the structural and visual composition of the world around us. These latest works of collage and assemblage continue his tradition of challenging the boundaries between two and three dimensions, while leveraging his sensitivity to the everyday images that comprise our environment. These new “higher-tech” creations now incorporate computer-generated elements, monochromatic fields, and a bolder, crisper array and arrangement of sumptuous, thought-provoking imagery. Robert Swedroe’s passion and commitment to the practice of both art and architecture are as ardent and profound as ever. His designs evolve with the sensibilities of our time and with his own growth and maturation as an artist.

I design my works to intrigue the viewer and allow them to discover something new each time they look at it. One of my most popular is the 2022 Celestial Bursts from my Celestial Series. This eye-catching mixed-media-on-canvas collage brings vibrant color and drama to any room or space. It is inspired by the beauty I find in colorful planets and stars colliding in organized chaos in deep outer space. Round circles, wheels, and discs are strategically placed to give it a three-dimensional appearance. Gems, jewels, and stones provide pops of color to make you say “WOW” every time you see it.
