Influenced primarily by the New Topographics movement (New York 1975), Bob investigates the geometric and colour permutations evident in the New Zealand industrial landscape.  This ‘accidental abstraction’ has fascinated Bob and has been fuelled by his conviction that the everyday and common place is not without beauty and wonder; “it all depends on how you look at things. I try to bring clarity to what might otherwise be seen as trite, banal or just downright ugly”.
