Having grown up in a house that featured one of Mr. Swedroe’s collages hung prominently on the wall, I was delighted to see his creative passions experience an almost superhuman resurgence over the past twelve months as he dove once again into the intricacies of his constructions.
Over three decades have passed and brought with them both new developments in technology as well as a full career of architectural projects.

Recently I had the privilege of being invited to the magnificent home of Robert Swedroe and viewed his latest collection of amazing collages. Robert Swedroe is not only one of the most famous and respected architects in Florida but has managed to become one of the most creative artists in the field of multi-medium constructions.
How he has been able to join the world of art together with his great creativity as an architect is absolutely astounding. Swedroe’s collages are poetry in motion and color.
His ability to join materials produces an aesthetic message that is wonderfully suited to the medium of collage. His love of blazing colors, his taste for the exotic, his romanticism and wit, his flowing images of bodies and visions all find expression when put together in these brilliant constructions. Swedroe is an innovator and finds joy in exploring the unexplored.
I am very proud that in 1969 I presented him in his first one man exhibition.
