In Variations I, Robert Minervini continues his investigation of humanity’s complex relationship to both the natural and constructed environment, looking at our dual and conflicting desires to both tame and live harmoniously with nature. Inspired by walks around San Francisco neighborhoods, many of his works focus on small, improvised garden spaces, exploring how space is organized in densely populated urban areas with an effort to bring in the natural world. The grid lines also reference construction materials and the way that natural space is manipulated in our urban landscape.
Robert Minervini received his BFA from Tyler School of Art and his MFA from SFAI. His work has been exhibited at the Schneider Museum of Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Bedford Gallery, the Brooklyn Historical Society, and the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery.
