Rob Heath, (b.1965) in Essex. England.
Resides permanently in France.
Award-winning artist Rob Heath channels the energy from his career in the business world into inspiring paintings of urban skylines. His talent lies in the expressive use of texture and color as applied to the towering facades of skyscrapers, bridges, and waterways. Using mixed media and acrylic on canvas, Heath transforms urban spaces into vivid tableaux, portentous and unforgettable. His palette favors deep crimson and earth tones paired with subtle cerulean, imbuing the canvas with a surreal effect. Despite the notable absence of figures here, we see a great deal of ourselves in these man-made environs, as they become reflections of our inner world. “Are we molded by our surroundings or do we create them?” Heath asks, “Are we the ‘container’ or the ‘content’?” Not to be tied down to one style or subject, in some works the artist expands upon his surreal imagery with monumental figures, while in others he removes more and more of the landscape, edging into the realm of Abstract Expressionism
