"Robert Holmes, although self taught, is intuitively dead center of the development of modern sculpture. The restless, thrusting energy of Rodin, the abstraction of Brancusi, the expressionism of Lachaise, the symbolic power of Moore, are all echoed in his work."

-Professor Richard Warren, Art Historian at Princeton & Stanford

"...when the construction business was slow, I blocked it out completely and started creating forms. That's all I thought about, and I knew those things needed to come out and be made real before I could concentrate on the commercial building project...My work is my statement; I don't believe that words go very far in describing sculpture. I would rather let people see my work itself and interact with it in their own way.”

- Robert Holmes

“Holmes' contemporary figurative work, especially his life giving female figure, expresses a nurturing, universal quality which celebrates the joy of being, the joy of movement, and our basic human need for ‘connectedness’. A consistent vitality is present in all of Holmes' figures, evident in the graceful movement of his dancers and runners, and in the solitary stillness of his reclining and seated figures.”

-Jayne McGuire, in her review of Holmes' work for the Del Mar Sculpture Garden in Del Mar, CA
