Levi Robb is a visual artist who lives and works in Des Moines, Iowa. “Frenetic Pause” is a collection of site based investigations concerning rural space and artifact. It is influenced by human interface with environment, landscape, and artifact. Through acts of printmaking, sculpture, installation and an interaction with locality, the artist analyzes, manipulates and reinterprets artifacts. The work emerges as a visual interpretation and record of a continual timeline with an inherent connection to the past. It encourages the viewer to take moments of pause from the frenetic existence of the modern day and observe object and place with a fully immersed presence that speaks to all human senses. The work will be exhibited in the main gallery and in an outbuilding on the grounds. Levi Robb grew up on a small farm in Southeast Iowa, surrounded by vast expanses of space, dense timberland and the Mississippi River. This agrarian environment played an important role in shaping him as an artist and designer, and the way he visually sees and perceives surroundings. Robb has a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Iowa State University and has spent periods of time living in the Southwest United States and Rome, Italy. His work has been exhibited in New York City and throughout the Midwest, and is in both public and private collections. www.levirobb.com The exhibit is made possible through the generous sponsorship of BNIM bnim.com The Volland Store is located at 24098 Volland Road, eight miles southwest of Alma, Kansas, on Old K-10 Highway, then ¼ mile south on Volland Road. thevollandstore.com Internet directions are unreliable for this location.
