Robert Michael Jones is a contemporary metal sculptor. His electric sculpting style brings to life characters of his own making that are both exciting and thought provoking. Characters that inspire modern mythologies  and speak of the past and future.

Why I am starting a blog

Probably the same reasons every artist has a blog but before I got started I felt I needed to define it for myself.  So here goes.

I have been making sculpture for 6 years now. In those six years I have engaged with many people through my artwork.  However interesting, they are usually fleeting conversations.  Whether with patrons or homeless people outside my studio they are interactions that I cherish. This blogs main purpose is to expand those interactions. To create an ongoing conversation about my work and about sculpture in general.

If a sculpture falls over and no one hears it does it make a sound?  It does.  But if no one sees my sculptures they can’t fall in love with them or start a cult following and worship them creating the best religion of all time.  That may be taking it a little far but the sculptures still need to be seen and to be talked about or else what am I spending all of my time doing.

As I write this my first challenge is to overcome the insane flare up of self-importance that writing about my work creates.  But my sculpture has inspired people. Some people do appreciate and even love the art that I make. This blog is about finding more of those people and opening myself up to them.

I am starting this blog to tell my story, share my opinion, my interests, and to share my inspiration. Hopefully at the same time I will become better at writing about my work and get feedback from the audience I build.

Be a member of that audience and you will feel so cool when I am mega famous.  So bookmark this page and come back for more.
