About Robert Guenther

Through his business, Artlust Bespoke, Robert can usually be found creating beautiful sculptural furniture pieces. There is usually a very generous serving of Art Deco about the designs. The elegance and glamour of the flowing lines add that eternal beauty to the function. However, when the SWELL festival rolls into town, it’s time to put away the handheld saw and breakout the chainsaw. The idea of scaling up and having the beach as a plinth is always super exciting. It is also a wonderful platform for letting art have a say.

2022 SWELL ARTWORK – Connect, Robert Guenther

“CONNECT”

Connect to your god, your higher self, the sky.
Connect to Mother Earth, the sand, the sea.
Connect to your family, your tribe, your humanity.
Connect, so we can heal this broken planet.

Let the thread of kindness and compassion bind you to the hearts of others. Let there be comfort and security in ‘oneness’.
Remind yourself that ultimately, we are a great beating energy of light and love.

Disconnection has permeated our life. It’s the crosses on the floor, the signs on the wall, and the look of fear on people’s faces.
It’s those awkward greetings.

RE-CONNECT
and have faith in the power of connecting.
