David Shrobe (b. 1974, New York, NY) creates mixed media assemblage paintings, oval portraits, and works on paper that manipulate the familiar into new and transformational configurations. These windows and portals, as the artist often refers to his work, provide glimpses into uncharted territory, and transport the viewer and his subjects. Shrobe’s work invites us to partake in a multilayered exchange of materiality, symbolism, and multiple perspectives, where abstraction and figuration coexist and new portrayals emerge.
