Robin Antar was born in Atlantic City, NJ in 1957. She has been sculpting since 1974 when a high school teacher introduced her to stone carving. Robin was awarded the Gold Medal of Honor by the Allied Artist of America in Sculpture and asked to become a full member.
Her mission as a sculptor is to create a visual record of modern culture by capturing contemporary everyday objects in stone, mostly marble, travertine and alabaster. By replicating the model on a life-scale along with marking and symbol details, she attempts to freeze the object in time as an artistic form of artifact. She achieves this high degree of realism through incorporating such materials as parts of the real object, custom-made stains, paints, plastics and gold leaf.
Her works have been exhibited in various shows and galleries, including Sotheby’s, NY; the National Arts Club, NY; Nabisco Gallery, NJ; Fine Art Management Enterprises, Miami, FL; the City Museum of St. Louis, Mo., the Provincetown Art Museum, Provincetown, MA; the MGM Grand hotel, Las Vegas and others. Recent commissions include Dr. Marten Boots, England; Sketchers Boots USA; California and Chateau Haut-Brion wines, France as well as private collections.
