Robert creates paintings notable for their texture, and sculptural presence with layers of impasto paint. His richness of palette and his use of strong colors that he put on linen canvas, creates a compelling work of mixed media art by which the viewer feels endlessly absorbed. Part of a series of paintings I play with elusive notions of memories and dreams, placing remnants of personal notes, poems and photos amongst writing and recognisable images from recent and past events. This plethora of imagery takes on new meaning and symbolism when combined on one canvas. I use mixed technique to my practice to breathe life and vibrancy into collaged surfaces with acrylic, oil, ink, charcoal and tempera. These fragmented images and texts emerge hazily from the paintings, giving you flashes of meaning but not divulging too much. My paintings are eclectic and symbolic and is about finding a balance in this patterned and rhythmic combination of collage and paint. The colours in the paintings are inspired by nature and the light shifts in the sky. My work is an interpretation of the differences between history and memory. How we are changing the memories every time we go back to them, and how we recognize images and remember events, and how other people?ÇÖs memories are different from your own. Memory refers to the way in which individuals and societies choose to remember or forget certain moments and events in their history. With the use of collage and paint I?ÇÖm interested in creating a compelling work of abstract art with recognisable elements that engages the viewer, is endlessly absorbing and promotes a meaningful dialogue, putting the viewer in an atmosphere of dreaming and remembering. Where the images be decorative, but also give an interest to move closer to see more details. I want the viewers to recognize personal memories in my paintings.
