Andrew Robert’s rich and gestural paintings depict diverse landscapes across the UK and Europe. He does not choose his subjects and locations; they choose themselves. For Andrew it is all about accessibility, but not in the traditional sense. Rather accessibility is the result of the universe choosing the angle for him. Painted plein-air, and always in square format, the works take on the physicality of their subjects through rich impasto surfaces, dynamic glazing techniques, and romantic, opulent palettes. They are highly evocative of the atmosphere of the landscape, captivating viewers and transporting them to another place and time.
For the artist, the paintings provide direct associations with experiences, triggering memories about the context in which they were created; these experiences are referenced in the anecdotal titles of respective works. Seemingly ambiguous, these titles offer intimate, literary narratives - a glimpse into the artist’s creative, and human experience.
“For me painting is all about the process, the finished product is just the wake of it”
