About the artist

Humans use REM sleep as a way to process their emotions, evoking vivid dream imagery. This stream of consciousness is what Robert Stenzel attempts to capture in his work, while using the artistic process as a form of emotional catharsis. Each piece is a door opened into the Jungian Mansion of the Mind, peeling away layers of the subconscious and creating a Rorschach test for the viewer.

Robert Stenzel is a multidisciplinary artist and curator who pulls from their experience in paper-cutting, small metals, and fiber arts. He has apprenticed under a master paper-cutter and received a BFA in Studio art from Cal Poly Humboldt.

Stenzel currently works out of his home studio in Ronkonkoma, New York.
