Robert Thiele

Robert Thiele’s calm intensity emanates equally from his person and his works. An established figure in the South Florida art scene for more than forty years, Thiele sustains a remarkable studio practice that, first and foremost, builds on itself. In paintings that he calls wall constructions, he embeds found objects from the environment. He creates apertures through which we can see a hint of an object. The shape and translucency of the window is essential. The construction is about 5 inches deep, and if the sides are straight, then he wraps them in canvas, painted white.

Biography
