Procession 24×30″ oil on linen

To overcome oppression we inevitably must render it powerless by surrendering ourselves, as we celebrate our heritage. The Procession celebrates the joyous place in ourselves that knows nothing of oppression. It is the part of ourselves that connects with the whole of humanity and recognizes we are part of something much larger than ourselves. This band of “warriors” are “fighting” on behalf of this benign but powerful oneness.

    Review of “Procession” and my solo show, “Quench,” at the Grosse Pointe Art Center (GP War Memorial, 32 Lakeshore Blvd) January 13 to March 26 2022, by Donald Cronkhite:

    “Robert’s overall painting style is based on alla prima, in which paint is applied wet-on-wet, rather than waiting for previous layers to dry. This representative style of painting allows him to paint at a faster pace, usually in one sitting, while still retaining the modeling and appearance of his figures through the juxtaposition of color values, color intensity, and the use of light. Notice in this example, the rich cool colors in the background complement the warm pinks worn by the figure in the foreground. Robert expresses mood through the suggestion of details in some places, while leaving out those that are unnecessary and direct the eye throughout the composition. This device is also used to convey depth, as the details in the foreground are much sharper and more colorful than the suggested buildings on the shoreline across the water. Another tool for moving the eye is directional brushstrokes. In Procession, we see the brush strokes of the clothing and the water all leading to the central figure, also indicative of movement and wind.”
