ROBERT PIEROSH 

My artwork themes explore danger, mystery, and seduction. These are also the attributes that keep me interested in a project from the initial spark through to final execution.

I work in screen printing for the same reason I worked in darkroom photography printing -- being able to manually manipulate prints during the printing process. Just like my photography work, I am interested in creating unique prints, rather than editions. Perfection is for computers, copiers, and machines. I like art to feel handmade and raw.
My current work, Assassination Portraits, explores the physical similarities of the assassinated and the assassin -- two figures locked in time through a single, historical moment that overtime begin to appear more alike than different.
