By Robert Olliver-Jones

On-Line Gallery Available

Robert Olliver-Jones says of his work…

“ I am a figure painter who is inspired by the arrangement of bodies in space, their relations to it and to one another providing a language to explore a diverse range of experiences and emotions including fear, hope, loss, vulnerability and compassion.

I would describe my style as classically figurative with flashes of photo-realism but with a strong personality that is easily recognised. I aim to make tender, sensuous and at times provocative paintings, rich in metaphor, symbolism and layered meaning with heightened emotional depth.

I allow myself the freedom to trust my instincts when it comes to subject and composition and I take many of my references and influences from contemporary film, dance and theatre, in particular the film maker and artist Derek Jarman, the films by Peter Greenaway, the choreography of Pina Bausch and DV8 and the music of Michael Nyman…”

ABSTRACT ART
“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual.” — Tom of Finland
