Robert Redus


My paintings are about the process of painting, enticing the viewer to see how their story fits into the imagery I have created. Much like an afternoon spent cloud watching and the dialogue necessary to balance on that narrow space between objectivity and subjectivity when explaining/convincing what one sees in the sky above.

My recent work is inspired by emphasizing the negative spaces generally, the unseen places in the landscape. The thin, uneven lines, dividing and breaking up the subtle flat fields of color gradually become events.

This process evolved from a commitment made between April and November 2011 to paint a series of 500 small paintings on paper. This commitment has continued on through to the present as I paint small paintings on paper
