Robert Maki

Robert Maki has exhibited in France, Japan, Canada and across the USA since the early 1960's. He studied drafting four years before engineering drawing in college and taught descriptive geometry, mechanical drawing & art/art history prior to graduate school. He received his BA from Western Washington University in 1962 and MFA from University Washington in 1966. Between 1962-69 his sculpture and drawings were exhibited nationally, and in galleries and museums in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver BC with important early one-person exhibitions at the Richmond Art Center, CA; Michael Walls Gallery, SF; Attica and Richard White Galleries in Seattle and notable "West Coast Now" exhibition organized by the Portland Art Museum.

Named "Alumnus of the Century" at Western Washington University, Honorary Lecturer at the University of Washington and Rockefeller Artist-in-Residence at Wake Forest University, he has also received NEA fellowships & grants, private & public commissions and recognized for his site-generated sculpture projects over the past four decades. His concept based curvilinear sculpture and large tape & metal wall drawings are fragments complete by idea, site and participant. Drawings follow the sculpture recording perceptual variations, additive building process and geometry of derived pentagon voids and solids, real and implied, as they unfold from the Timaeus triangle.

Over the years Maki has maintained a separation from formal teaching, but has continued lectures, residencies and installation projects. In 2005 he moved form Seattle across the Sound to Kingston, building an exhibition space, studio and sculpture garden, but requires his large scale fabrication be done on the Duwamish by the company underwriting his 1995, 18 piece outdoor installation, "MAKI AT THE GARDEN" in Bellevue, Washington.
