Figurative sculptor Bob Trotman was born in 1947 in Winston-Salem,
North Carolina, and currently resides near Casar, North Carolina.
Trotman began as a studio furniture-maker, but a growing interest in
sculpture finally lead him to devote himself to it exclusively in 1997.
Trotman received his BA in philosophy from Washington and Lee
University, and has taken workshops with Sam Maloof, James Surls, and
Robert Morris. Personal contact with Judith Shea and Martin
Puryear has also been extremely important.
Trotman's work has been seen most recently at the Richmond Visual Arts
Center, Richmond, VA; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC and in
group shows at The Katonah Museum of Art, Katonah, NY and The Mint
Museum, Charlotte, NC.
Trotman has received two art fellowships from the National Endowment
for the Arts and three from the North Carolina Arts Council.
