Internationally recognized artist Robin Antar discovered sculpting when an art teacher acquainted her with stone carving in her Atlantic City high school. Inspired by modern culture, Antar molds popular objects like candy, jean jackets and work boots out of stone, capturing their lifelike essence through custom-made paints, plastics and gold leaf.
"My mission as a sculptor is to create a visual record of modern culture by capturing contemporary, everyday objects in stone. By replicating the model on a life-scale along with marking and symbol[ic] details, I attempt to freeze the object in time as an artistic form of artifact," says Antar.
Antar's work has appeared in galleries around the world, including Sotheby's New York, and is a recipient of the Gold medal of honor by the Allied Artist of America in Sculpture.
