Robert Bengtson / The Art of Detail Gallery

Sausalito, CA

"Be inspired by your art!"
I’ve been a visual artist most of my life, starting back in 1988 when as a sophomore at Brown University I had the first image appear in the photography darkroom as part of an introductory class at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). A perfect harmony for my right and left brains, the art of photography became my way of celebrating the details of this miraculous world.

For nearly 30 years as a commercial photographer I've been commissioned to photograph nearly every context you can think of. There’s little, indeed, I haven’t seen (contemplated, celebrated) through the lens of a camera. Over a decade a go I coined the term 'The Art of Detail' to describe my style of photography.

In the Summer of 2020 I pivoted in my career to open a small gallery as a way to apply my creative visions directly to the personal lives of others. Creating life-affirming art to inspire meaningful experiences to uplift and empower people feels like the highest calling of creativity to me, and I'm loving the experiences of contributing meaningfully to others in this context.

I also see every creation as a type of tuning fork. Where all the ingredients that go into making something — from the intention birthing it, to the materials, to the carbon footprint — provide a specific frequency. Which in turn combines with each person’s experience (feelings, relationship) of the thing. To create the highest frequencies possible, we make every piece of art to order while imbuing each piece with a unique intention as part of its journey in(to) this world.

I'm thrilled to making select pieces of my art available here. If you have any questions, reach out anytime. And if you’d like to learn and see more, visit us on the website... or in person at the Sausalito gallery if / when you’re in the area!

Many thanks,
