Robert Lotosh is a sculptor of mature style, in whose art tradition plays an important role. All of his works are characterized by high artistic culture. It is felt in everything: in the way Lotosh shapes his works, the way he organizes the shapes plastically, the way he poses them rhythmically in space. Material is always yielding and expressive in a sculptor's hands, whether it is bronze, stone or wood. Smooth lines and surfaces of 3-dimensional objects work in unison with the material's own surface. The material's texture intensifies the images spiritually by amplifying their emotional resonance. Traditional images, such as the nude female body, compositions of male and female figures, torsos and figures of Classical divinities take hold of the viewer's imagination. They are all re-molded in the Lotosh's art into unexpected and fascinating plastic solutions, provoking a multitude of artistic associations and feelings in viewers.
Lotosh's sculptures are modern and decorative, the look good in empty space as well as in floral surroundings.
