Inspired by deconstructionist philosophy and design, Robert Otto Epstein’s drawings, paintings and sculptural works meditate upon the subversion of meaning. His works exist as metaphors for systems of cognition and production, as he states, “Through my work I explore the way that repetitiveness is structured into discrete forms that are shaped by the prototype, which become the pattern, which become the system, which is itself repeating.” Using these reductive imageries, Epstein’s work incites viewers to contemplate the building blocks of concept and life systems.
