Robert Hurst – A Damn Fine Artist (Booth P-2)

Robert Hurst at Armadillo Christmas Bazaar

Artist Statement:

“I combine abstract and figurative art to explore modern culture through its inhabitants. I start by layering acrylic paint on canvas to create an abstract painting. Then I paint the subject on top of the abstract. The background shows through the figurative work and is an integral part of the whole. I also employ color in bold, unexpected ways to evoke motion, feelings and mood. Use of these bold, vivid colors invites viewers to look at the subject differently. It also serves to place the subject in a modern context.”
