Robert Egert’s career spans the postmodern 80s in lower Manhattan, the neo-formalism of Williamsburg in the 90s, and the new abstraction of Bushwick in the 2000s. His work provides a unique synthesis of these currents, and captures the transition of artistic life from Manhattan to Brooklyn during these decades. Robert Egert has exhibited at Holly Solomon, Jack Tilton, Civilian Warfare, and White Columns.
