ROB PITTAM


Rob Pittam was addicted to Cornwall from his first childhood holidays there.   As well as the landscape, the ocean, and surfing – those brilliant, sunlit summer days on the beach seem to have triggered a lifelong fascination with the subtle emotional power of light and shadow.

Greatly influenced by the work of Vermeer and Edward Hopper, he too aims for a certain quality of stillness in his pictures.   The still-lives often include fishes and he believes that they are amongst the most interesting subjects in nature to study in paint.   Possessing colour, pattern, reflectivity, perfectly evolved streamlined shapes and a three-dimensional form to ‘sculpt’ in light and shade – they might also be read as metaphors for the sea itself.

Rob Pittam works in a classical technique using the translucency of acrylic paint, over a pencil drawing and monochrome underpainting on gessoed board, to build up tonal depth through multiple glazes of colour.

We are hoping to show new work by Rob Pittam at The Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park March 9th-12th.
