Altering Skins - Surface to Form

BY ROBERT OPPECKER
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 09, 2013

There are 3 generations of artists in Robert Oppecker's family. His father was a prolific abstract artist in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Robert is a scupltor and silversmith. And his son is studying graphic design at VCU. Robert's own work focuses on form, line, and volume, but because of the silver medium he does not get to do much with color on the surface. To capture this "intergenerational energy", Robert, along with the help of his son, Michael, explore ways to meld the surface treatments with the scupltural expressions.
