About the Artist

Robert Fontenot is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work explores contemporary themes using traditional craft techniques such as bread dough sculpting, hand embroidery, appliqué and other forms of needlework.  His current series of works uses bread dough sculpture depicting scenes of love, violence, and historical importance as a means to explore the macabre undertones of gothic and neo-classical decorative schemes.  Fontenot has exhibited at the Salt Lake City Art Center, Elizabeth Dee Gallery, Enview Gallery, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Mark Moore Gallery, Jancar Gallery, and QED Gallery. He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design.
