Artist: Robert Aitchison
Robert Aitchison’s art is informed by nature; investigating the structure and dynamics of the natural world while exploring diverse themes of landscape. In his work he’s attracted to the chaos and complexity of uncultivated environments. The construction of his paintings is guided by various drawings and studies done on-site outdoors. Sketches created from memory also play an important role in the evolution of the works. Through the fusion of these disparate visual records Aitchison seeks to establish contemplative scapes that allude to the experience of being in nature rather than a depiction of specific locales.
Aitchison was raised in Spring, Texas and studied painting at the University of Texas at Austin. His art has been exhibited in Texas, New York, and Europe and can be found in private collections in the United States, Europe, and South America. He currently lives and works in New York City.
