Join artist Robert Standish as he discusses his career, style evolution, and techniques. Robert Standish is an American painter living and working in Los Angeles whose organic process reveals the emotive effects of color, shape, texture and gesture. Inspired by the color-field painters, Abstract Expressionism, and Abstract Spritualism, Standish’s free-flowing use of paint is his way of exploring abstraction, composition and transcendence. His works can be found in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, JP MORGAN CHASE, Weisman Foundation, Lancaster Museum of Art and History, Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Crocker Art Museum, Louis K. Meisel, Larry and Marilyn Fields, Patricia Arquette, Norwest Venture Partners, and BRYANT/ STIBEL, along with numerous other acclaimed collections. Standish’s paintings have been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, including group shows at the Carnegie Art Museum, Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, Laguna Art Museum, a duo show with Sam Francis at Martin Lawrence Gallery, and a solo show at the Museum of Art and History, Lancaster.
