Robert Watts • Statement 

In 1957 I began working on pieces involving electric light, with random circuitry, incandescent wire, plants and fish. One day in July 1958 I stopped painting…Since 1970 I have continued to explore methods and attitudes toward art utilizing my knowledge and experience with past art and archaeology, esoteric information, science and technology, natural phenomena, and print technology. I work with concepts first and methods secondarily, chosen to suit the thought at hand.                         —ROBERT WATTS (1987)
