artist STATEMENT

As a result of his many years at sea, Mojo is endlessly fascinated by the mechanics of perpetual motion and the inevitable artistic and practical challenges that come with rendering an essentially inanimate object alive. Robert produces his kinetic sculptures out of industrial materials and found objects because “to me these materials represent beauty and familiarity: I have been around them all my life. Carving into an inanimate object as cumbersome and unforgiving as steel; giving it life, movement and purpose. To me this is art.”

 

Bio

Robert “Mojo” Mojeski (b. 1971), native to the East End of Long Island New York, had his first experience welding at the age of 13. Always an entrepreneur he began his career buying and operating an 80 foot commercial fishing vessel. After many years on the water he was decidedly unsatisfied and turned his sights back towards his love of art through welding. Mojeski combines industrial materials with found objects to create his kinetic, abstract and realist sculptures. Robert’s work is in private and corporate collections throughout the Hamptons and the US. His kinetic installations ‘Tipping Point XIX’ and ‘Synopsis’ are on loan to Ken Schwenk and Ray Wellen of the Green Thumb at Hayground respectively and are considered well-known and much-loved Hampton landmarks.
