Robert Baart: Landscape
February 12, 2014 - March 24, 2014
Opening Reception Wednesday, February 12, 2014 5:30 P.M. - 7 P.M.
My paintings hover between realism and abstraction. They embody a language of color, texture, light, atmosphere, and resonate on a level beyond the normal visual experience. They remain abstract yet familiar and I hope they provide the viewer with a moment of decompression and introspection. -Robert Baart
