Robert Therrien's work references Pop and Conceptual art, Marcel Duchamp, childhood experiences, cartoons, and American design. Primarily known as a sculptor, he has also worked in painting, drawing, printmaking, and photography. While his early work was less representational, he arrived at a breakthrough with his 1993 work No Title (Yellow Table Leg) and Under the Table (1994), a wooden dining set blown up to gigantic proportions that viewers can walk under and around. By forcing the viewer to adjust his relationship to familiar objects, Therrien pushes his works toward the status of classical Greek sculpture.
