Bob Budd (Woodbury/GB)

Projektjahr: 2009-2010

I believe my art gains through a dialogue with social space and therefore I have chosen to work primarily in the area of site specific or public art.

Artist statement

On one level, art can simply open up the area of creativity in our common spaces, but it can also reveal the spirit in our everyday lives and provide signposts that direct our thoughts and mirror the concerns we may have for the environment and for our culture. In the dialogue with social space I attempt to give form to the complexities and concerns of contemporary life.

This world of questions is mirrored by my visual language which is in itself often questioning, at times ironic, humorous or surreal, but also, I hope, to the point.
