Octopus Ring by Rob Wynne
While remaining remarkably eclectic and wonderfully versatile, Rob Wynne’s art is consistently interlaced with direct allusions to literature, television, and conversations. He craftily extricates them from the context that confines them, and contrasts them with his signature nostalgic and surreal imagery to create an atmosphere that might as well have been set in a Proust novel.
The OCTOPUS ring come directly out of Wynne’s work in other materials. He has been using insect imagery for many years in Wallpaper, Glass & Beaded thread drawings. He is interested in the complexity and beauty contained in them as well as their range of literary and historical references.
