ARTIST STATEMENT

A preservationist at heart, Bob’s sweeping acrylics on canvas capture the primitive beauty of stone, twig, boulder and branch – earthly elements we all see each day, but often overlook.  “I’ve been experimenting with size and scale, creating variations on a single scene from near and far,” Bob explains. Diptych pieces such as “Longs Peak – Near and Far” reflect this new aesthetic.
