ARCOmadrid Edition Featured Artist: Labor Robert

Labor Robert, Venise Star E,contemporary Writing Re-reading, 2012, 50 x 72 x 3 cm.



Labor Robert has painted for over forty years, and his oeuvre has evolved, diverged, and reconverged over the decades. "Sampling" from such canonical styles as Constructionism, Cubism, and Expressionism, Robert's work forms a hybrid, a quiet dialogue with art history. Currently, by photographing and manipulating his past works, he is engaged in a re-reading of his own painting history by digital means. Labor Robert lives and works on Réunion Island and Boulbon, France. For more information please visit: and his Artslant Profile:
