Robert Strawbridge Grosvenor (born 1937) is an American contemporary sculptor, installation artist, and draftsman. He is known for his monumental room installations, which border between sculpture and architecture. Grosvenor is often associated with minimalism.
In Grosvenor’s work, he uses a mixture of industrial materials such as car body parts, plexiglass, stone, brick, concrete, plastic and steel.
It is hard to qualify the work of Robert Grosvenor. His sculptures are at once graceful, dynamic and seemingly minimalist, but it would also feel right to say they are often absurd, sometimes quirky.
Weather it is through large sculptures or tiny color snapshots, his work exerts a sculptural and conceptual precision that comes across in the most effortless way. His work remarkably interacts with the surrounding architecture and activates the viewers’ presence. He explores the sensuousness of his materials and the nostalgic qualities of their color and design.
