Robert Lobe, Invisible Earth. 2007, heat-treated hammered aluminum, 9 x 5.5 x 13.5 feet
The chief experience derived from Lobe's eloquent work is a meditation on the existential nature of nature itself in terms of matter, time and context. "Each tree tells a story," Lobe wants us to know and see in Nature's Clock (2006), Invisible Earth (2007), and Antique Jenny (2011).
