Born 1964, Robert Newton studied Fine Art at Sunderland University and is currently living and working in Northumberland. Never afraid to use colour, his work explores both composition and expression, yet always maintains his painterly approach. Robert sees his work as ‘painting nature’ not only in context but as a vehicle to express the medium, its plasticity and how it conveys an illusion of reality.
“I describe my work as ‘painting nature’, as a direct response to my immediate surroundings; exploring colour, composition and expression yet maintaining the very traditions of British painting. Making sketches as well my own visual notes I paint intuitively and expressively with bold sweeping brushstrokes that sum up whole passages of the landscape that is before me. Painting on location and in the studio, I often rework paintings intuitively to produce a completed work.”
Robert’s work has become very collectable over the last few years and we are very pleased to include this new selection of monotype prints. These unique artworks are a great opportunity to buy affordable, original art which captures his painting style and themes.
