Dario Robleto | An Instinct Toward Life

June 2, 2011

The mediums of Dario Robleto’s works read like the ingredients of an alchemist’s recipe, tears, human hair, bone dust, soldier’s wedding bands excavated from American battlefields and Civil War-era sweetheart letters evoke the intimacy of love, longing and loss during wartime.  The burdensome history of these objects is embedded in their very pulp and Robleto’s re-created artifacts elicit a palpable sense of loss and a haunting reverence.
