Robert Moore



Robert Moore started to make kinetic rolling ball sculptures in his workshop two years ago. The hand bent curves and bends on each piece are as unique and personal as a drawing, possessing flowing linear forms that Moore finds pleasing to look at both as static and running startling creations. Robert Moore has always had an interest in creating linear drawings, and rolling ball sculptures allow this fascination to continue in stainless steel.

Each sculpture starts with a simple set of ideas but the constant testing and adjustments hugely influence the route that each track takes. In the later stages of construction it becomes more a competition to find left over space for tracks to continue, working in this way presents surprises and problems that need to be overcome.

The appeal of kinetic rolling ball sculptures lie in their ability to captivate a wide audience on different levels. Involving the viewer to anticipate the variety of movements and features keeping their interest going, and beginning to see how these sculptures bring out the onlookers own creativity, as feedback and comments so far are largely suggestions and ideas for future work.

Ultimately, Robert Moore’s sculptures can be regularly enjoyed and recognised with artistic integrity, despite being uncomplicated in concept.
