Found Spaces

New paintings by Robert Ross

September 7 – 28, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 7, 4 – 7 PM
Artists Talk: Friday, September 13, 11 AM

For his second solo exhibition at Arts on Douglas, Central Florida oil painter Robert Ross examines the essence of everyday scenes from direct observation.  While he continues to paint outdoor landscapes, this exhibition reveals a new area of exploration for Ross: interior spaces.  In his exhibition statement, he notes “… to escape the summer heat I moved indoors… but it didn’t take me long to see the interior spaces I occupied as landscapes, too, but with a difference. Outdoors, I paint to depict light and openness.  Indoors, my subjects are confined spaces, the geometry of domestic life." READ MORE
