Hollywood Sculpture Garden Embodies As A Metamorphic Utopia For Creative Spirits
Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 9/27/20 – The prettiest vivarium for artistic enlightenment and display, discover a new meaning to the term “art house” as reigned by Dr. Robby Gordon, proprietor of the Hollywood Sculpture Garden located in Southern California. Aptly situated in the Hollywood Hills and accessed via winding roads, the garden extends to virtually every nook and cranny in sight. Dr. Robby works evocatively with oils and acrylic paint to express avant-garde concepts. He has boldly woven art into the very infrastructure of his home, welcoming the works of many talented artists from all nations through an inclusive residence program.

Sculptor Jorg Van Daele goes to Hollywood at the end of May to realize his twentieth peace sculpture "Sculpture for Peace". Van Daele already saw half the globe to convey his message of peace. He was in Zimbabwe until a few days ago.
Jorg Van Daele started his project of peace years ago and now there are at least one everywhere in the world and on every continent. A project that apparently works, because the questions keep coming. This time even from Hollywood. "I have been asked to make a statue in the Hollywood Sculpture Garden," says Jorg Van Daele. “A few local artists in the vicinity of Palm Springs make their studio available. The nice thing is that the weather will be made with a stone from the region. This is a large stone of about four cubic meters from the Joshua Tree Park. I can't imagine a better place for my twentieth peace wing."

When the artist and collector Robby Gordon moved into his home six-and-a-half years ago, there was little landscaping to speak of, just a few shrubby plants and a steep slope of naked dirt. Today, every inch of his property—inside and out—is a medley of paintings and sculptures in metal, plastic, and stone, by more than two-dozen artists. After a few tumbles, Gordon and his collaborators built a staircase and railings, and anyone can stroll the garden on a self-guided tour to appreciate the eclectic installations, which include a 1,000-pound dragon, a turtle made from a bent wok, and spindly, spiraling flowers fashioned from mesh screens and strips of air ducts. (Also: Don’t sleep on the killer view of downtown L.A.)
"Dr. Robby Gordon’s Art Gallery is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
Located in the Hollywood Hills, the gallery features unusual art pieces, window coverings and statuettes that promise to enchant and amaze. Many of the paintings are designed to be viewed with 3D glasses, which bring many of the paintings to life. “If you put darker colors in the back and lighter colors in the front, that will create the effect,” said Dr. Robby Gordon. “My goal is dimension and depth.
The gallery has window shade art, statuettes, paintings and more. Dr. Gordon also has designed a line of clothes that are definitely unique, patterned in his own amazing style.”
"Although technically this sculpture garden is artist Robby Gordon’s backyard in the Hollywood Hills, most of it is visible from the roads on either side of it. Given its steep hillside location – and the slippery footing atop the loose dirt, strewn with pine needles – it’s unlikely you’ll actually be able to walk around it much, but it’s worth stopping by to take a gander. At the top of the hill, two figures hang from a tree, arms interlocked. Another tree up there has been yarn bombed, and a bright pink headless figure (painted by Robby) stands glowing in the sun to greet you. Be sure to look up at the roof of the painted garage, where two mannequins painted by Gordon flank Brian Carlson's "Flamenco Sol.” ”
"Up in the Hollywood Hills, below the Hollywood sign, Robby Gordon built a small oasis of modern architecture overlooking breathtaking view, a home-gallery with much greenery and artistic bright colors.
Robby, born in Israel, arrived to the United States in 1973, one day after he was released from obligatory military service. A trained veterinarian, who became allergic to animals, Robby studied finance at UCI. He played, on and off, with eclectic art all his life and now art, of many forms, is the center of his daily life activities.
Robby is holding a permanent and evolving art exhibition in his impressive, hillside, three levels, tastefully modern home, which he designed and completed three years ago.”
