Robert Hitzig: Rough/Polished

September 6 – October 2, 2019

Rough/Polished is a collection of primarily new work that tells stories non-verbally through contrasting textures, odd shapes, and color. They express emotions, feelings, and experiences that are beyond words.

“When we see people, we capture a tiny fraction of who they are. We have no idea what they have been through and how they got to where they are. All that matters exists but can’t be represented with visibly identifiable objects. To me, colors and shapes feel like the best way to capture what is present but invisible. All of our personal history — events, plans, interactions — leave marks.” -Robert Hitzig
