Robb Stone

Robb Stone sources images from the relentless torrent of social media and the news, selecting those which resonate with his interest in the intersection of classical imagery and contemporary masculinity. Using materials such as bleach and silk, he isolates and simplifies the figural forms, highlighting how our contemporary visual culture of endless gazing at massive amounts of visual stimuli has transformed the traditions of photography and art history.

Robb Stone is profiled in New City Art as one of Chicago's "Breakout Artists: 2013"
