From Archway Gallery:
“Robert L. Straight’s last exhibition, Fusion 2, showcased his proficiency in many media, including glass, wood, and different metal processes such as welding, forging, and casting. With this exhibition, Straight expands his ideas into the “Fifth Dimension,” and breaks new boundaries in his use of materials and techniques.
The works in this exhibition are displayed in groups of five, linked together by material, style, and execution. Straight invites the viewer to accompany him into his new dimension of kinetic sculpture, with artworks that tell a story in motion and with grace. Some of these pieces represent Straight’s largest and most complex works to date. The exhibition will include new renditions of his planetary sculptures and other works inspired by the cosmos. For example, in Galaxy 5, Straight goes beyond the hard lines of his fusion pieces, incorporating more fused powdered glass with soft transitions and evoking the nebulous qualities of galaxies far away in space and time. Time Vise is a solid aluminum clock suggesting a spaceship returning through space and time from a far-off galaxy. Straight caps his exhibition with a bit a whimsy – a series of glass masks that explode with vibrant color and promise to become dear friends.”
