Rob Southcott is an artist and designer driven by a creative sensitivity for observation and synthesis. Creating objects and art pieces that address the potential of form and function as a relational aesthetic exchange. His work draws from the realm of the experiential and the lived. As a creative maker, he finds inspiration in every facet of the material world, transforming observation into novel re-articulations of the known and the familiar. His process-oriented practice summons metaphor and considers the inherent lives of materials and their transformation.

Coming together in dialogue and collaboration, participants are limited only by their imaginations, making CUTMR one of the most exciting shows in Toronto. January 24 – 27, 2013.
