Jeff Robb Biography


1472312865659

Born in 1965 in Derbyshire, UK.
Since graduating with Distinction from the Royal College of Art in 1992 with a Masters degree in
Fine Art Holography, Robb has continually made art, ceaselessly experimenting with
three-dimensional imaging. Shortly after graduating, he was invited to submit a landscape work
to the V&A museum’s permanent collection, the first ever hologram artwork to be accessioned
by the museum. Robb’s work now features in museums and private collections around the
world.Robb is currently best known for his lenticular photographic work focusing on the female
nude and abstract forms in space, which he makes in series. The artist has recently begun to
produce bronze sculptures working with the female nude, a subject familiar to him, using cutting
edge modelling technology combined with historic casting techniques. This radical development
is typical of Robb’s open experimental approach in making art, using any combination of tools
and technology available to him.

In parallel to developing lines of enquiry around the nude and abstraction in his lenticular work,
Robb is beginning to work on projects which investigate how we experience sound, and
large-scale kinetic installations for public spaces, museums and galleries. For many, these new
directions will at first seem uncharacteristic. Those who are familiar with Robb’s approach and
what drives him as an artist will understand the significance of each project for him in testing
possibilities with the lenticular medium, and creating new immersive experiences using
three-dimensional imaging and cutting edge technology. This kind of experimental lenticular
installation work is completely unchartered territory for artists.

Jeff Robb works in a variety of media including lenticular photography, painting, bronze and
silver cast sculpture, reflection and transmission holography, photography, film, laser light and
sound installations. The galleries here are representations of lenticular photography that use a
vertical lens array to present a stereo pair of images to the eyes. They are 3D pictures without
glasses. The screen images cannot convey the visual impact of the medium, so animations are
used to simulate their 3D nature. While only eight images have been chosen for each gallery,
there are many more images available in each series. Please visit or contact the gallery to see
the full body of work. Jeff Robb is shown in galleries and art fairs around the world.
