Please enjoy my Hand Painted Reclamation of the System in the Cracks, Urban Fishing for Curb Fodder.
*Re-Use Re-Cycle Re-Purpose*
In July of 2012 , Robert changed his focus from custom work to a more personal expression. He signal this new direction by embracing his given name of Robert in this encore period of this artist's life, making the move to Cincinnati to pursue this new vision. Robert McFate Studio.
What is Fodder Fishing? I collect curb fodder with a magnet on a string, what I like to call "fodder fishing". Rusted metal is fished from the cracks & edges of Cincinnati's Streets. Curb Fodder is a never-ending byproduct of an endless obsession with cars and various transportation methods.
I hope that I have created some work that the viewer will give a home. I see beauty in objects overlooked yet gleaned for new life.
