Laser Portrait, Robert Wiley

Grande Marinha Hand, Robert Wiley


Robert Wiley (b. 1970) is an American artist living in Portugal and teaching glass art within the VICARTE research unit at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the NOVA University of Lisbon. As a member of a research unit that brings together artists and scientists working with glass, Robert's current work focuses on his attempt to understand the nature of creativity and the similarities and differences between art and science. His artwork grows from intuitive and meditative exercises with glass as he searches for personal symbolic language and works to make sense of the complexities of our modern reality
Robert mooves freely between glass making disciplines and thus one can find most aspects of glass makimg in his work including flame working, enamel painting, blowing, kiln-working and others. As an avid collector of curious objects, his work regularly involve mixed media, and his background in construction work and fishing each play equally significant roles in shaping the art work he makes.
"I am constantly moving between the analytical and the emotional. As hard as it is to say sometimes, I believe in magic..., there has to be room for magic."
