About my artwork
Colour and music form the basis Robert's current work. Using the elements as a subject, he creates paintings that express their meanings in the same way as music and sounds produce feelings of atmosphere and of emotion. His use of colours seem to be minimal but their are complex in the way they subtly react with each other. Dated 27/06/08
At the moment, Robert is trying ideas using numbers and sequences. In a way it's a development of his use of music. Looking at ways to give his work more depth and movement, he uses the delicate, yet complicated, ways colours interact with each other Dated 06/04/09
Robert's use of minimal amounts of coverage to create the maximum illusion of depth and movement is achieved with blocks of colour. Dated 23/03/11

I worked at an equestrian centre for a while. I'd been a design engineer, worked at a BT call centre, worked as a night porter at a posh hotel, and I was fed up with being made redundant and being messed around. I saw the horsey job at the jobcentre and rang after it. The horsey guy said can you use a shovel and carry a bucket? Yes I can, said I. You've got the job! It's the best job I'd ever had! The nearest I'd been to a horse before was watching John Wayne on the tellie, but I got on great with the horses and I had not fear at all. The money was poor and so was I, but my roses came a treat! I've had riding lessons but I would still consider myself to be a novice, albeit a very confident Novice. They're scary when they rear! I my experience there is no such thing a safe or bombproof horse. It only takes a leaf to rustle and they think it's a lion about to jump on their back!
Oh Barry! Barry Wright! Barry Wright the musician! No. Sorry. Never hear of him.
Take care Estelle,
Who cares about dirty !!!! thats how you get to the good stuffs :-)
I still ride when I can afford to which isnt often enough. As a child I rode a great deal --chase me charlie was my favorite gymkanah event The last horse I owned was bonkers and scared of dogs. He once fell over backwards from a rear-- on the road-- because I wouldent let him cross with his friend. Sold him not so long after and baught a car.
I knew a musician called Barry Wright ( no not the famous one ) a vegan singer songwriter "The Vegtable Autonomous Collective" Any relation to you ?
Oh the studio was an artist group and was next door (I think) to the F.S. so I didnt get too distracted by the bells or hunky firemen either!!
Do you ride? Often?
