I try to stay with themes or objects or sources I can trace back to my personal history. The further back I can trace something as being meaningful to me in some way or another… the more I am attracted to it.

                      —Robert Therrien

PROJECT STATEMENT

The lushly colored storybook image in Robert Therrien's No Title (1996) speaks of childhood curiosity and a parent's instinct to preserve the fleeting days of innocence through the fantastical story of where babies come from. The exaggerated length of the stork's beak tenderly delivering the parcel punctuates the absurdity of this fable. Like much of Therrien's work, No Title tells the story of the surreal realms that exist between dreams, mythology and childhood memories.

Robert Therrien is known for his whimsical, large scale sculptures of every day objects such as dishes, tables and chairs. These installations often inspire a childlike awe that summon the sensation of being little again, a time when anything is possible. His work wryly recalls the wonders and trepidation of youth.

ABOUT ROBERT THERRIEN

Sculptor and draftsman Robert Therrien was born in Chicago in 1947 and raised in San Francisco. He earned his MFA degree at the University of Southern California.

Therrien's work is featured in well-known art museums and galleries, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, NY, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, CA, the University of Iowa Museum of Art in Iowa City, the Walker Art Center in Minnesota, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, The Broad Art Foundation in Santa Monica, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. His works can also be seen in many international museums and galleries, such as the Kunstmuseum Basel in Switzerland, the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst in Belgium, and the Tate Gallery in London.

From 2009 through 2014, a major group of his works were part of ARTIST ROOMS, a traveling collection of international contemporary art established through The d'Offay Donation with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, The Art Fund and the Scottish and British Governments.

Therrien lives and works in Los Angeles.
