Robert Firestone, Schizophrenia, 2016, Lightjet print facemount acrylic, polished edge, acrylic back, 30 x 40

Robert Firestone, the clinical psychologist, author and artist offers a series of works that focus on the more fragile aspects of the human condition. Schizophrenia (2016) has a definite intensity, a la Georges Rouault, while works like Confrontation (2016) and Girlfriends (2014) have a sort of 1960’s psychedelic feel that is quite stimulating to the eye and mind.
