Robert Bloomfield paints tiny figures in stark, unyielding landscapes. The British artist favors spray paint and works predominantly in cool tones of grey and black. The effect is introspective and moody. The smallness of Robert’s human figures, set against the immensity of the landscapes in which they wander, seems to suggest something about the human condition. We love the existential spirit of these canvases and the thoughts about solitude they inspire.
Robert didn’t have the opportunity to study art when he finished high school, but a painted gift for a friend confirmed that he was destined to be an artist. Days spent spray painting with his friends as a teenager had begun a process of self-training that would lead to a remarkable career in painting.
