From his early days in the high desert near the small town of Bishop in southern California, Robert Kinmont’s work has been informed by the surrounding landscapes and ecosystems which also provide the foundation to his process.

Utilizing an amateur and handmade approach to both photography and sculpture, Kinmont illustrates the human scale and its relationship to one’s surroundings. Incorporating both irony and humour the works explore the systems and structures that continue to develop within this relationship.

In her essay, Julie Ault observes that “for the artist, the photographs imply the investigation of the distinct mental operations of applying a standard selection criteria to different objects, which required him to ‘re-set time,’ and to ‘think about that structural / functional criteria of our brain.’”—Exhibition Press release, 2009
