"Astrological Instrument of Obscure Function" by Robert Schwarz. Aluminum, Monofilament, Formica on Wood Panel, 22 x 22 x 6 inches.

 

.

Schwarz’s interest lies in reflections and faux depth. Which level is the surface? What is the reality? His materials include polished metal, monofilament and glass – with LED lights reflecting off of these elements. The reflection moves as the viewer moves and is therefore always changing. Each piece springs from a ‘center,’ but also creates multiple ‘centers’ in the viewing experience.

"Regal Appurtenance Discovered Near Denab" by Robert Schwarz. Aluminum, Monofilament, Acrylic Rod on Wood Panel, 11.5 x 11.5 x 5.5 inches.

.

He is fascinated by balance and equipoise, creating constructions that are mandalas: designs that represent the search for completeness.  He considers the process of making them a meditation. As Schwarz notes, “They present themselves to me as models of titanic spaceships or artifacts found in the depths of space – the unconscious.”
