Painter-printmaker Robert Marx taught at the State University at Brockport from 1970 to 1990. His figures personify the frustrating, hurtful, and dysfunctional aspects of the human condition in relation to authority, personal relationships, and oneself. He invites the viewer to meet the gaze of his subject, stating, “If I am successful, my people will make eye contact with you and a dialogue will begin.”
