Robert Irwin Wolf studied fine art, photography and sculpting at Pratt Institute
and The Tyler School Of Art at Temple University and went on for post graduate training in psychoanalysis
at the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees
in Design and Professional Studies from Pratt Institute and is a licensed Psychoanalyst and Creative Art
Therapist. Over the last 30 years Robert has taught psychology, art therapy, sculpting, photography and
photo therapy in various educational settings. He is currently a professor of studio art and art therapy at the
graduate school of the College Of New Rochelle, visiting professor at Pratt Institute and is on the faculty of
several psychoanalytic training institutes. He has authored numerous articles on art therapy, phototherapy
(the therapeutic use of photography) and the application of creative processes within psychoanalytic treatment.
Robert's sculptural forms have been influenced by Brancusi, Arp and Moore. They are composed of organic, linear and gestural images that are translated into abstract form. These contemporary sculptures integrate elements of human form and movement, with the natural beauty of a variety of types of stone and wood.
His most recent interest in digital photographic media has led to the production of unique urban and rural landscapes. These images, taken in various places around the world, are creatively edited with special digital software to enhance the visual experience for the viewer. They are available in various sizes, printed on archival canvas or paper. His prior experience as a caricature artist has informed his perspective and technique as a creative portrait photographer.
His photographs and sculpture have been published and exhibited internationally throughout the United States, Costa Rica, Europe and South Korea. Currently available sculpture as well as a more complete inventory of photographic images, may be viewed by appointment, in his 'Hell's Kitchen' Loft/Studio
