Lebsack’s artworks tell us stories about ourselves. They have a remarkable ability to filter our dreams and aspirations while visualizing edgy, half-buried perceptions troubling us about the world around us. Many of his paintings express courage and offer a form of and engagement with our continually shifting surroundings.
Lebsack says about his art: “It’s about new ways of thinking for the future generations. Hopefulness in young dreamers and a paradigm shift away from conventional reasoning in thoughts and actions. Some social norms can be good but they can also hold some people back, stunting our growth individually and as a society.”

Robert Lebsack’s mixed-media paintings layer human subjects and landscapes in ink, acrylic, and charcoal atop fragments of torn sheet music or newspaper. Utilizing bits and pieces of lyrics and text as the literal background as well as the social and cultural context for his art, Lebsack uses the confrontations between his subjects and a surreal landscape to address various crises of contemporary society, such as materialism, apathy, waste, loneliness, and isolation. The paper fragments often are juxtaposed seemingly at random, challenging the viewer to read the bits and form their own interpretation through free word association. Lebsack has been exhibited throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and collected globally.
