Richard Dobra is a New Jersey based artist whose work often challenges conventional ideas of art and reflects the concepts of the Dada movement. Drawn to the symbolism and meaning imbedded in common chair forms, Dobra created a series of works that play off notions of design, function and their relevance to human form. The series was first presented at the Morris Museum in 2001.
