Robert Stackhouse is best known for his sculptural installations that are usually temporary, monumental, and site specific. They frequently resemble large ship hulls or serpentine forms, which, according to the artist, "are closely related symbols of different aspects of transformation myths." His semi-architectural constructions are made of wooden slats and beams—readily available materials found in any lumber yard. Stackhouse's creative process usually includes graphic work, either preparatory drawings or creative re-workings of his sculptural themes, such as this lithograph. This relates to a 1991 installation, Soundless, exhibited at the Contemporary Art Museum, University of South Florida, Tampa.
