ROBERT ENGMAN SCULPTURE:
Theme and Variations
Robert Engman with Nancy Porter & Anders Engman
• A display of Robert Engman’s sculpture series he has worked on
for the last decade
• 52 sculptures from nine conceptual families, with a short preface
by the sculptor
• With limited time, Engman manifested his refined concepts in a more modest scale than
before
Robert Engman’s work over the last fifty years has ranged in size from monumental to
miniature. Large pieces he has created for major cities andmuseums in decades past have
common attributes but he had never formally attempted tomake a series of relatedworks.
In the last ten years, he has cast a group of 52 distinctive small sculptures, whose modest
scale has allowed him to realize his vast number of sculptural ideas more efficiently. This
collection clearly demonstrates howEngman’swork expands and alters three-dimensional
structural concepts. Divided intonine families, the sculptures’ forms are basedondifferent
combinations of circles and squares in flat and warped planes. Each piece is shown from
several angles, revealing strikingly different perspectives.
Robert Engman
is an American sculptor whose works are exhibited in collections
and galleries around the world. He was a popular professor at Yale and the University
of Pennsylvania and in retirement has been actively creating new works of sculpture.
