Robert Mirek (b. 1957) is a painter and sculptor from Detroit, Michigan. His current imagery can best be explained as simultaneous. The visual language that he is developing is a form of self-dialogue that resides in objects, systems and scenarios that are at the edge of abstraction. Developing the imagery is a non-linear, or perhaps best phrased as, a personal rationale. He works through a thought process that keeps as many doors open at once. The conceptual connections, which eventually become visual signals, are drawn in simultaneous moments. Often they have their origins in mythic or universal themes.
