About

img_6699.jpg

Robert Pan has been working with resin for twentyfive years, creating worlds.

Peter Weiermair calls him an alchemist of colour, and Danilo Eccher calls him a poet «of uncertainity of perception and appearance».

His artwork are colourful objects, always results of an experimental production process. Though remaining formally abstract they remind us of macro- and micro shapes in nature, celestial landscapes or geologic structures—and leave space for imagination.
