Rob Kesseler’s Phytopia

The exotic forms and luscious colours of the plant world and the way in which they migrate into every aspect of our lives has been a source of inspiration throughout Rob Kesseler’s artistic career. Using a wide range of familiar materials and objects from ceramics to furniture and from drawing to photography he creates sensual sculptures and emblematic images that celebrate the subject in a uniquely personal way. His early work explored the tensions between artifice and imitation and the paradoxes of representing nature through ironic and humorous sculptures covered in familiar pictographic icons.
