About Robin Antar

My passion as a sculptor involves a technique I uncovered more than 20 years ago — the precise art of creating 'virtual records' of contemporary culture — capturing common, everyday items in stone. Essentially, I replicate these items on a real life-scale, complete with meticulous detail. I achieve this absolute realism by incorporating parts of the actual object, as well as custom-made stains, paints, plastics and gold leaf. It's more than art imitating life, it's art mirroring life. My mission as a sculptor is to create a visual record of modern culture by capturing the everyday objects of our time in stone. Through the faithful replication of markings and symbols, I attempt to freeze the object in time in an artistic form of artifact. To promote the realism of my sculpture, I create them on a life-scale that challenges the viewer to discern real object from stone. I achieve this degree of realism through the use of such materials as parts of the real object, custom-made stains, paints, plastics and gold leaf.

My works have been exhibited in various shows and galleries, including Sotheby’s, NY; the National Art Club, NY; Nabisco Gallery, NJ; Fine Art Management Enterprises, Miami, FL; the City Museum of St. Louis, Mo.; the Provincetown Art Museum, Provincetown, MA; the MGM Grand Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, and others. Recent commissions include Dr. Marten Boots, England; Skechers Boots USA; California and Chateau Haut-Brion wines, France as well as private collections. I have been featured in newspapers including The New York Post, New York Daily News, Las Vegas Tribune and others, and magazines such as Fashion Manuscript, Art Business News and Sportswear International. In May/June,2007 I will be featured in House and Garden and NY Home, to name a few. I have also been awarded The Allied Artist of America (Gold Metal of Honor and asked to become a full member), Match Up (first prize) in sculpture, work selected to be in Best of America artists and artisans, Best of New York Artists Books (second place) in sculpture, United Creators, (second place), Sculptural Pursuit (4th place in their national annual competition), Broadcasts include Today in New York, Fox News in Las Vegas, NV, HGTV’s “That Clever”, and 1010 Wins radio in NY. Memberships include Pen and Brush, NYC; National Association of Women Artists and the National Sculpture Society.
