Robert Gober, American Sculptor

An American sculptor, Robert Gober’s work is usually connected to domestic and familiar things, such as sinks, doors and legs. He studied literature and fine art at Middlebury College, Vermont and the Tyler School of Art in Rome. Gober was focused on painting in the initial years in the art world. However, he came to the limelight by making slides of a changing painting, consisting of 89 images of paintings made on a small piece of plywood in his storefront studio.

Gober made a slide of each theme, then scraped off the paint and began again. His most popular series was produced around 1985, which was created with more than 50 increasingly eccentric sinks, made of plaster, wood, wire lath and many such things.
