Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition
Twentieth Anniversary Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition

Robert Winkler

In 2003, when Robert Winkler moved his studio from Brooklyn, NY to Asheville, NC, collectors in both cities were curious to see if the softness of the mountains would be reflected in his new work. The first test arrived before the moving boxes were unpacked, when he was invited to participate in a project for that year’s Venice Biennale. His response was a continuation of the forms he had been exploring since the early ‘90s and continues to explore today. What defines his work is the ability to manipulate volume, mass and balance to create a sense of movement, achieving serpentine, animated forms without a single curved cut.

Born in 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio, he has been pursuing his art for most of his life. By the age of seven, he was attending the children’s art classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art. He went on to study ceramics, painting and sculpture at schools in various cities, including the Cleveland Institute of Art, Ohio State University and the School of Visual Arts in New York.

An internationally exhibited sculptor and the founder of Asheville’s RiverSculpture™, Robert is a passionate proponent of public art. His sculpture is collected by corporations, museums and private individuals.
