Yvonne Robert is a painter celebrated across the globe for her minimalist paintings that communicate with her edited palette. Robert says she is “happy when the viewer gets through my paintings an energy that they can take with them or carry out.” Following in the footsteps of renowned female artist Helen Frankenthaler with her restrained composition and master of rich pigment, Mark Rothko, Robert utilizes a deliberate brushstroke to activate bold hues.
Yvonne Robert is a painter celebrated across the globe for her minimalist paintings that communicate with her edited palette.
Known for her large-scale canvases that balance pleasant compositions with a vibrant minimal palette Robert’s work derides emotion, it sings a song. She shares an interior space with her gestures that pulls you into her canvas. Of the show’s title Roberts says it “describes the atmosphere. The senses perceive it consciously and unconsciously. It is the non-visible factors that are so important for the emerging, visible work. Air also stands for light, smell or temperature. Sound also stands for quiet sounds of any kind or thoughts that go through the head.”
