Statement

Rob Bos wants to be an Artist.  He has been trying real hard.  He has tried to ‘do’ the right stuff all according to plan.  for example - He has often worn all black, he got ‘arty’ thick rimmed glasses, made paintings, went to school for art, he has tried to read many ‘heavy art books’, went to art lectures, and art shows, and has tried to ‘understand’ what it is all about.

After university, starting an art gallery seemed like a good idea, so he did that and the gallery lasted three years hosting over 40 exhibitions.  Rob can be shy and awkward and the gallery gave him something to talk about, helping him be social.  After the gallery closed the best idea he could come up with was presenting five exhibitions at once.  Often plagued by depression and low self opinion, Rob has used these personal elements to push himself further - to do something.  Ultimately his goal is to find a responsible manner to exist in the world doing as much as he wants, and as little of what he doesn’t.
