Robert’s courtroom sketching career is a fairly recent addition to the artistic diversity of his work. He considers his courtroom sketches, particularly on the Dylann Roof case, an extension of his artistic mission: to see anew, to see deeply, to challenge complacency, to expose lies, to fight for truth and explore the meaning of justice, individually and as a society. The other side of this coin is to celebrate, explore and edify life. This seeming dichotomy between darkness and light is fully expressed in the courtroom as truth and justice are pursued.
