Robert Bennett Jr. was born in East Syracuse, New York in 1992. His projects range in material and scale, yet all present moments of solitude for his audience. The experience accretes within them over time. Bennett has also been a part of many collaborative and public projects, creating social landscapes of dialogue and interaction between himself, his work, and his audience. He currently resides in Portland, Maine where he recently received his BFA in Sculpture, with a minor in Public Engagement, at the Maine College of Art.
