Robert Chambers

Robert Chambers lives and works in Miami. He has played a crucial role in the development of Miami's art scene and contributed greatly to the city's reputation internationally. Born in Miami in 1958, Robert Chambers earned his MA (1990) from New York University and his BFA from University of Miami (1983). He ran the sculpture departments at NYU for a number of years and then continued his teaching career at the University of Miami. "The idea of combining contemporary sculpture and modern science with non-traditional materials is at the core of my work as an artist. My work very often references a sense of experimental playfulness. The rigidity of science, chemistry and physics is broken by a desire to reclaim as my own, and subsequently present to an audience. In some ways the final product becomes almost an esoteric experience." (From his website)
