is a native Texan whose work has been inspired by Native
American art, Oriental Art, European art, scouting and Indian
Lore. He studied at Texas Tech University in
Lubbock, Texas and has been greatly influenced by his visits to
the great art meccas of Europe and especially by the art of
Gustave Klimt and Rene Lalique.
is a partner in the
Robert Lance Jewelers
store in Lubbock Texas. For more than 34 years, he has designed
and created fine jewelry as an art and as an expression of love
for the craft. His highly detailed work in his art reflects his
skills as a jeweler and master wax carver. Robert’s
expression of archetypes in Native American culture is depicted
in ‘petroglyphs‘ and pictographs from ancient North American
sites, blended with mystical spiritual symbols, Braille,
Asian art and other icons. His limited edition collection
includes two and three dimensional Bronzes, a full line of
wearable art and a vibrant palette of contemporary paintings
that follow the same mystical style for which he is known.
Robert’s forms of art are layered by the actual creation of the
piece and his descriptive storyline that develops the feeling
and passion of each piece as it is being created. These
storylines, written by Robert, accompany many of the individual
artwork. The storyline plays as much a part of his art as the
actual piece itself. Reading the storylines
while viewing his work creates an experience of emotion and
memory of an event or person. Robert calls
this the “memory bond” which becomes the catalyst for the
relationship to his work. Each person will experience this bond
in a different manner.
