dot-art is delighted to host a show of stunning new paintings, all of which aim to capture or reflect in some way, the theme of water. Rob Edmondson taught art for over 40 years and since retiring in 2012, he has found the time to concentrate on his own work; this exhibition is the result.
Rob takes inspiration from the landscapes of the North West, as well as the artists he most admires, including David Hockney and Kurt Jackson. Revelling in the physical manipulation of paint and experimenting with unusual techniques to gain evocative effects, he finds the challenge of depicting water of particular interest. He says:
“Water is the single most valuable source of life. Water can be a film on a surface, it can be shallow, or it could be deep. Water creates and defines landscapes. Water moves and catches light. There are oceans, rivers, canals and lakes along with myriad other sources of inspiration. I have accepted the opportunity to focus on water in my art work.”
“My aim is to create work which considers grasps and develops the visual qualities of water. I try to understand my subject intimately. I take account of the time of day, the weather conditions and the season. Water is a living entity, constantly changing, an integral part of the environment.”
“My paintings are not photographic. The art work is based on what I see. My intention is to interpret what I see, and develop art pieces that have a life peculiar to each painting. Implicit in each painting is the use of light, colour, depth and movement.”
