Artist Bio

Rob Wynne’s art is intertwined with allusive phrases that he appropriates from literature, television and conversations. Once extracted from their context, and juxtaposed with Wynne’s surreal, nostalgic imagery, they create a Proustian atmosphere where such figures as Louis Aragon, Maria Callas, and Georges Bataille seem to have a dialogue. In his 1990s installations at Holly Solomon Gallery and Grey Art Gallery in New York, Wynne embroidered photographs of 18th century Meissen figurines with fresh anachronistic texts; lined rooms with butterflies or snakes silkscreened on wallpaper; and embroidered suits with Jean Genet’s stage directions before hanging them in the window. In his most recent work, Wynne choreographs large hand-poured letters of mirrored glass on the walls to embody his collection of borrowed thoughts such as ADIEU, VISIBLE SILENCE, and BE COME!.

Rob Wynne (b. 1948) has had numerous solo gallery exhibitions, including JGM Galerie, Paris; Galerie Edward Mitterand, Geneva; and Holly Solomon Gallery, New York. His work has been featured in group exhibitions at the McNay Art Museum, TX; P.S.1 Institute for Contemporary Art, NY; Long Beach Museum of Art, CA; The Drawing Center, NY; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA. Wynne's work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; The Museum of Modern Art, NY; Philadelphia Museum of Art, PA; Centre Pompidou, France; The Norton Museum of Art, FL; the Columbus Museum of Art, OH; and the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Paris.
