"Pieces of Me" is a journey exploring the techniques of renowned Jim Melchert to explore the energetic connections that happens when tile is fractured and reconstituted. A metaphor for life many times we break apart but the journey is in coming back together. The pieces on these walls walk through the journey how pieces that were once broken and repurpose come back together to form something beautiful.

 

About Rob Rao

I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, surrounded by the industrial complex of steel, coal and glass. So all my life I’ve understood what the melt looked like from the building process. My life is a journey of how we walk through the fire. I look at myself as the intersection of the right and left brain. I am a creative artist while pioneering AI computer vision technologies. I feel that art feeds innovation and innovation feeds the art. So along with being an acclaimed artist.
