New Artist: Robert Asman

We are excited to announce the addition of local photographer, Robert Asman.

Artetude Gallery, Inc. is pleased to announce Robert Asman as the newest addition to our gallery.  The Asheville-based artist will be featured as our “Artist of the Month” for August.  On Sunday, August 12, 2012­ at 2:00pm, Robert will discuss his photographic-based works on paper, as well as his life and inspirations.

For most of the last thirty-five years, Robert Asman has been devoted to investigating and stretching the conceptual and technical boundaries of silver prints.  As an alchemist of the dark room, Asman’s creations come to form in the darkroom through the boundless manipulation of paper negatives and chemicals.  His explorations and technique bind human form, urbanism and nature.  Asman approaches art making as a transformative process, in which he mines the physical properties of his materials to create a work on paper in which process and image are one.
