Legacy

Robert Martin

Nov 16 - 30

I am creating work that visually presents as (or perhaps somewhere near) wildlife art. That is, I am using the visual language and motifs of this genre to communicate queer themes, identities, and storylines on the rural American stage. Conversely, in generating ruralcore art, I extend an invitation to those who may feel excluded by the sometimes elitist nature of the art world and its institutions. It’s important that my work acts as a bridge rather than present as a Trojan horse. I am interested in generating conversation over critique; between the queer community and rural America, between the canonized fine arts and the commodified wildlife arts, across wealth brackets and beyond a gender binary.
