Robert is a tireless painter who offers, “My most recent paintings express my interest in what I call the "UNDERWORLD". I’m fascinated by the worlds that exist beyond our immediate field of vision and have an abiding interest in the flora and fauna that occupy the space within these tiny worlds. The kind of things that one must hunt for in the grass, in the pools of water or with a microscope.”

I find myself attracted to these subjects for their extraordinary physical beauty: fantastic design, structure and their complexities of color, translucence… It’s amazing how so many organisms have evolved into our complex world.”
