The Collages of Robert M. Swedroe

During childhood, Robert Swedroe constantly sketched buildings and landscapes which evolved to complex assemblages.

From 1964 to 1974, working full time as a senior design architect for Morris Lapidus, Robert created 500 collages, which ultimately sold in galleries and at solo shows.  When he opened his own firm in 1974, he reluctantly gave up the art to totally devote himself to architecture.  But he kept his early art in the public eye with a colorful hard-cover book published in 2002. This second book features 125 dazzling images reflecting the exciting, imaginative directions in his current work.  The book can be purchased at Books & Books in Bal Harbour and Miami Beach and The Bookstore at the Grove in Coconut Grove.  Price $29.95 + tax.
