Robert James Foose - Watercolors, Landscapes, Oils, Abstracts

Robert James Foose, who, since 1984, has been associate professor in the Department of Art at the University of Kentucky. Known for his painterly oils of Kentucky landscapes and complex still life watercolors.

"For me, all painting is abstract. The idea itself is abstract. I make paintings that can be easily named ... that is, the viewer knows what the content is. In naming them, I am interested in showing the structures and forms (abstractions) within those parts of nature that I am continually drawn to. (My) oil paintings -- my first after a twenty-five year hiatus -- are fleshed-out versions of earlier concerns. Continuity is not only important to me, it is unavoidable. The agitated frenzy of nature itself barely hides the violence and hope. Though contradictory, both are also very attractive."
