Robert Lach’s sculptures are based on the architecture and anatomy of nature. Lach constructs green habitats that reference the design, form and structure patterns found in the natural world. The focus is on the labor of craft by experimenting and manipulating everyday recycled objects into art material. Sculptures are constructed into units or multiples mimicking the biology of living organisms.

Born and raised in Northern New Jersey, Lach is a multidisciplinary artist who graduated from New Jersey City University with a BFA in sculpture. The local landscape inspires and fuels his art practice – from the state’s post-industrial north to the beauty of its southern wildlife areas and beaches. Found objects, recycled materials, and gathered detritus from various environments are muse for sculpture, photography, installation, and public art projects.

Public art projects have included the Atlantic sculpture park in Atlantic City and The Gateway Project in Newark, NJ. The artist has participated in residencies at Guttenberg Arts, Elsewhere in Greenboro, NC, ESKFF at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ, Solo(s) Project House in Newark, and I-Park in CT.Exhibition: March 6th, 2021 – March 28th, 2021; Opening Saturday March 6th.
