    About The Work

    In Wall of Water Robin Rhode has created one of his arresting narratives. The compelling photograph depicts a character, dressed in a white doctor’s coat, placing a stethoscope against the wall’s surface below a painted water droplet.  This spontaneous act implies that the wall embodies life-like qualities, such as a heartbeat, and the character’s ears are filled with the sound of the water drop.  In addition, as with many of Rhode’s photographs, the character is masked, and meant to remain unknown, universal, and timeless. 

    Like much of Rhode’s photographic work, Wall of Water is heavily influenced by the early methods of motion photography and motion pictures, often seen in the work of Eadweard Muybridge.  A sense of spontaneity and action is also a vital aspect of Rhode’s work, and this work embodies the rebellious nature of graffiti and street art with the body-based performance art of the 1970s.
