Robert Thompson is a twenty year veteran of the United States Navy with a BFA in painting from the Academy of Art University. Robert’s process is often an optimistic attempt at forging harmony from what begins as discord and chaos.
Working primarily with oil paints he utilizes a variety of substrates to include paper, wood, cotton canvas, linen, and even metallic surfaces. With these as his tools he endeavors to instill emotion and mood in his work by building atmosphere and depth with his own aesthetic sense.
This aesthetic sense relies heavily on finding a balance between the abstract and representational as he feels that some portions of his work are better left finished by the viewer’s imagination.
