Robert Dozono is a Portland-based artist that attempts to bring attention to what we are doing to our natural resources by using a canvas layered with what is cast aside. He takes reused objects that one cannot recycle and places them into his work—plastic items without numbers, wiper blades, rubber bands, toothpaste tubes, hair dryers, etc.

A long-time faculty member at Portland Community College, now retired, has been renowned for his instruction. He holds a BS in Art from the University of Oregon and an MFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.

Title of work: Welcome to the Neighborhood

July CalendarMany of Robert’s paintings are large river scenes of the Clackamas River and other areas of Oregon.  The August calendar features his work, Welcome to the Neighborhood,  a large 9.6′ x 8.5′ installment that features oil and garbage on canvas.

As mentioned above, the natural environment is very important to Robert, and at one point he went nearly 30 years without regular garbage service! He grew up in a world where no one wasted anything and thinks we don’t respect or take enough responsibility for our natural environment. Take a closer look at this painting and you’ll see various pieces of garbage, and maybe even some items that were rescued while he was out fishing with friends.

Visit this art locally at the Multnomah County’s Central Courthouse on Floor 10, or up close by viewing here.

Print details: This calendar page is printed on the Xerox Iridess Digital Press. The look was achieved using CMYK toner plus metallic silver for a shimmer and pop. The paper substrate is Neenah Classic Techweave, Solar White.
