A calm sea , stars in the distance , the flashings of an old lighthouse. The woman. The dog and the boat. One glimpses an incurable nostalgia for a past time, perhaps better, perhaps non-existent, a painful longing which is revealed by the American artist living in Barcelona, Robert Froh (Wisconsin ). In ” Reflectiones ( Solitude ) , Collioure “, the elements converge in a synergy of his introspective nature and preserve a clear contemplation of the nooks and crannies in which they can be isolated with the failings of an insignificant work. Much to the contrary, Froh succeeds in giving us a refuge on the shores of the world.Carmela Glez - Alorda
Robert Froh, In Espacio 120, “Painting is just another way of keeping a diary ” said Pablo Picasso. Robert Froh quotes this phrase by the celebrated painter from Malaga, and thus we can have a brief idea of his conception of art. A thick and vehement brushwork is that which forms the canvases of the American painter who lives in Barcelona, where he finds inspiration in its people, customs and cultures taking into account the artistic antecedents of importance. For Robert Froh , painting is an escape from the day to day but at the same time it is a means to connect with it and find meanings, symbols and relationships between things.”J.G.
“Robert Froh is an American painter who lives in Barcelona. Born in Wisconsin, he studied painting at the Art Institute of Chicago , The Art Student’s League in New York , and the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Leaving behind his precious Midwest , he went to live in New York before settling in Barcelona in 2006. Froh recently exhibited at Art Cologne in Cologne, Germany . His work is characterized by simple compositions, impastoed, colorful brushstrokes and thick black outlines which give his paintings a great expressiveness.”J.G.
