Rob Southcottâ€™s practice as an artist and designer is driven by a creative sensitivity for observation and synthesis. Seeking the excavation of form and its relationship to function and the social realm, Robâ€™s work explores the parameters of their reciprocity, collusion and exchange.
Rob creates furniture, lighting, objects, and art pieces that address the potential of form and function as a relational aesthetic exchange. His work draws from the realm of the experiential and the lived. As a creative maker, he finds inspiration in every facet of the material world, transforming observation into novel re-articulations of the known and the familiar. His process-oriented practice summons metaphor and considers the inherent lives of materials and their transformation.
