MARK ROBERTS: OBSERVATION & MEMORY
October 7 - 30, 2016
Reception: Friday, October 14, 6-9 PM


Over the years as my painting career progresses, I notice I use less and less photographic reference in my work. In fact, in this exhibit of landscape studies every piece was painted from direct observation (en plein air) or from memory. I find photography is a step removed from direct experience. Film or digital images do not record colors as I really see them. For fleeting moments like sunrises or sunsets, and for low light conditions such as nocturnes, I must rely on memory. Memory filters out the unessential and retains the essential. This frees me to concentrate on mood and design unity.
