Robert Ross seeks to portray the beauty, mystery and hidden life of the ordinary in natural and human-made environments. He is drawn to the space between things and how it can suggest absence, relationship, yearning, or becoming. His paintings often convey a quiet stillness, a sense that something has just happened or is about to happen, the hint of an unseen presence. While good design is always his starting point, he also wants his paintings to transmit the pleasures of light and color. (adapted from robertrossart.com)
