Robert was born in 1991 and completed A Fine Art Foundation Degree in Yeovil College from 2009 -2010 then achieved a Fine Art BA Hons at Bath Spa University in 2013.
Lime Tree Gallery has represented Rob since 2019 particularly in the Bristol gallery and at art fairs in London, New York, Glasgow, Cheltenham and Ascot.
My work predominantly focuses on portraiture & the human figure, both of which have intrigued and challenged me for as long as I can remember. Itís that intrigue, and sometimes frustration, that constantly drives me to push further and explore.
For me, paint, and the many ways it can be used to create form and shape, is just as much a part of the work as the subject itself. Trying to describe the human form while exploring beauty and physicality of the paint is what fascinates the most.
In my paintings I am trying to create an essence of a person, or a moment in time, rather than a specific story or concept, and then leave it open for the viewer to interpret. This is something that I love particularly about figurative and portraiture work; its ability to take on a personality of its own.
