War Machine – 2019

War Machine is an expression of the needless expenditures of both life and money by our government’s war efforts. Through fear and intimidation, so many have suffered for the profit of a few. War Machine expresses the manipulation of the poor for the benefit of the rich.

War Machine was first exhibited at Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville, Virginia on April 5, 2019.

Benita’s Table

I just finished a table for my youngest daughter, Benita.  400 lbs. of steel, bronze and wood. The glass top is 55 in x 19 in x 3/4 in thick and weighs 100 lbs.

This was a complete surprise and we had an unveiling at Focus Gallery in Scottsville, VA. Benita was surprised. As an Artist these are the pieces I am most excited about.

Robert Strini sculpture piece removed from crate after 41 years.

In my new building which I built after my fire, I have decided to use it as a exhibition space for my art. I have a small barn about 300 yards from this space that I use for construction of my sculpture.

I wanted to exhibit some old sculpture so I opened a crate after 41 years and was surprised at what I saw. This is Sherdian Piece, built in 1973 at a work shop in Canada.  I love this piece and it was in remarkable shape.  Made of laminated ash, oak and maple, the piece is in good shape with no cracks or separations in the wood.  During this time I built good crates to house my work. Let me know your thoughts.

Thank You, Robert Strini

Bicycle

When the painter Andre’ Durain was on his deathbed, Giacometti, the sculptor, came to his side and asked if there was anything he could get his good friend. Andre’ looked up and said, “a bicycle and a piece of blue sky.”

Bicycle is 10 ft. wide x 6.5 ft. tall and 3 ft. deep.

All the black is steel and the fender shape is covered in sheet lead. Two piano legs are under the blue sphere. Both the sphere and ring are wood painted. I love this piece.

Robert Strini exhibits New piece at Chroma Projects for the Arts

                                                      The Package
 
                             Loss of something you care for and how
                             you deal with it is what this piece is about.
                             The I -beam,  a symbol of strength supports
                             the weight of all the memories of the loss.
                             The mattress becomes the final resting place
                             of these memories. Other objects are simply 
                             references to specific moments you had with
                             your loss. Finally the marble X, marks the
                             spot, the end, and the moment of letting go.
