Robert Zehnder

Robert Zehnder’s multi-perspective compositions depict expansive and deep landscapes—both self-devouring and unpopulated. The artist employs a cartographic approach that evokes anxiety and uncertainty. The pictorial logic of Zehnder’s landscapes offers the viewer an unreliable foundation and a compromised vantage point true to the post-digital era.


Robert Zehnder was born in New Jersey in 1992. The artist received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Illinois in 2015.

Zehnder’s work has been included in exhibitions at: Rachel Uffner Gallery in New York City; Mrs. in Maspeth, New York; Laura in Chicago, Illinois; Jacket Contemporary in Chicago, Illinois; Spider Gallery in Wichita, Kansas; and the Ox-Bow School of Art in Saugatuck, Michigan; among others.

Zehnder currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
