Artists Statement

 

My practise aims to explore all aspects of life. I'm interested in the theme of ancestry and continuity. Our world is in constant flux and our own personal lives are shaped by political and social powers beyond our control. I want to celebrate the individual, explore the resonance we have with the natural environment and convey how we are affected by the elemental forces of life and creation.

His current series of mirrored stainless steel sculptures and installations absorb their environment and reflect the constant flux of movement day by day. This relationship with nature is further explored in Mulholland's series of de-constructivist sculptures such as ‘ Skytower’ and ‘Random Act of De-constructivism‘ in which the natural forces of wind and gravity appear to re-shape the structural forms.

 

Rob is currently engaged as Artist in Residence for Cuningar Loop as part of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Legacy Project.  He has been commissioned to create an  6 metre high landmark sculpture at the entrance to the new park and develop a series of art interventions with the communities in the east end of Glasgow.
