Bob Voigts

  • American,

  • Bio

    Robert Voigts grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, IL. Mostly self-taught, he works in acrylic, mixed media, collage, as well as digital media. He knew from an early age he wanted to pursue art.


    His experiments in collage and assemblage and his personal study of art history have been the biggest influence in his work, as well as the landscapes of Illinois and Missouri, and the surrealist poets, especially Robert Desnos. He is particularly fond of artists Joseph Cornell, Kurt Schwitters, Wayne Thiebaud, and Richard Diebenkorn.


    When beginning a piece, he doesn’t have a fixed idea in mind, but instead, he follows intuitive impressions. He uses old recycled digital and handmade sketches, photography (both his own photos and found photography), found art, paper, packaging, and trash. He experiments with color, shape, line and texture. He plays with ideas of chance, opposites, mundaneness, memory, wonder, contradiction, juxtaposition, poems, letters, numbers, punctuation, and more. After following the impressions and lots of experimentation, he arrives at a stopping point, contemplates what emerged, considers if it is done and if it is, names it.
