Alan Robb, I Live Now
November 17th – January 5th 2017-18
A collection of work by the Scottish painter Alan Robb is being held at Dadiani Fine Art Gallery.
“Fresh colour, an exacting sense of design, technical skill and an inventive and restless mind… an exquisitely rendered body of work and a rare pleasure to experience.” Dr Janet McKenzie, Studio International October 2012.
“As I review my practice and resulting body of work it seems like a speculative circular journey, based almost wholly on intuitive choices and a growing understanding of what I can do. The motivation and momentum comes from unexpected discoveries and the hundreds of small decisions, which give each work its resolved identity.” AR
The work offers an incredibly rich vista of the historical and religious influences he has found on his travels. His knowledge of painting language and dedication to the craft of painting itself give a pure resolved clarity to his pieces.
