Twiggies and odd-shaped wood carvings are the primary focus of Rob Liptak's work and has been since he began carving
twenty-three years ago.
Intarsia is another area of interest where shape, form, color, and line quality are used to create stylized images.
Liptak has won a number of awards throughout his carving career. He is proud of his Best of Show Honors in Maysville, KY, Best Sculpture at the Springfield Museum of Art in Springfield, OH, and Best Fantasy Sculpture at Dragon Con, Atlanta, GA.
His individual gallery shows include: The Garden Gallery in Carlisle, PA, The Viking Vineyard in Mogadore, OH, and AFL in Florence, KY. He has participated in a number of group exhibits: the War and Peace Show and the Global Arts Project in Yellow Springs, OH as well as juried shows in Seattle,
San Francisco, Columbus, and Detroit.
