Robert Pan was born in Bolzano, Italy in 1969. From 1987 to 1991 he studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino. Robert Pan develops in his artworks a rigorous and scientific study which consists of the overlap of several layers of resin and other wrought material. The artist goes beyond the results of the American post-conceptual artists of the late '70s and reaches an intense feeling. His artworks are a gate that allows the viewer to access the artist’s universe. The expressive and the communicational necessity rely on the images, which at the same time veil and unveil their original archetypical evidence. This can be seen in his first series, where he reiterates the figure of the cross, the ellipse and, sometimes, the rectangular. In these artworks, the image is submitted to the undefinition of the objects, which are submerged from the material. In the following series, the image vanishes gradually, until in the end it completely disappears. Here the viewer seems to lose every reference point of the real, which is guaranteed by the Cosmos. In fact, the titles indicate either spatial coordinates of a constellation or the horizon pole (Zenit).
