Featured artist twice in the Art Of England and in artnews the most widely read Art magazines. Rob has attracted international attention for his medative landscapes. His style of painting has been described as contemporary impressionism and he receives favourable reviews by artists and critics alike. His work is held in private collections in Britain Europe and the USA.
For me, making a painting is like making a poem, it is both an expression of a feeling and an impression of a place; whether my focus is the brightening field corner, the running shadows of a stream or the feeling of awe in mountainous spaces under stormy skies. I try and portray the sublime in nature. Working outside, makes this emotive experience a direct one. Depending on the nuances of the paint the wind or sun my work finishes somewhere between abstraction and figurative. For me this is part of an almost spiritual occupation full of emotive intensity a journey where the end is never a constant and where sometimes a painting may take two or three years to complete and be at its best when the sub conscious has moved the paint across the canvas.
My work is in private collections in Britain, Europe and in the USA.
I did an Art Diploma at Bolton University gaining a distinction in painting and then I studied for an MA course in the History of Art.
