Flynt’s primary concern is to re-imagine the human body. His montage based work is the intersection of two layers: one a figure photographed with limited control (underwater or in a pitch dark studio), the other a found photograph or textbook illustration. The two combined, contradictory vocabularies subvert and augment their subject’s representative powers. Signed.
Robert Flynt’s work in photography and photographic-based installation has been exhibited in the United States and abroad since the early 80’s, both in traditional museum and gallery settings, in alternative spaces, as part of performance art and dance performances, and in numerous publications. In 1992 his work was included in the "New Photography" exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where his work is now part of the permanent collection. It is also in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum, The International Center of Photography (NY), The L.A. County Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among many others.
