Tidewater Gallery will open a solo exhibition featuring nearly 30 small scale works in oil by Robin Cheers on June 15. “Vignettes” will feature figurative works representative of the artist’s expressive depictions of everyday life.
“Robin’s gift is her ability to bring a magnifying glass to life’s simple moments. Her paintings encourage us to appreciate the extraordinary stories that are told in the most ordinary of circumstances.” – Gilbert Davila, Collector
The collection includes subjects ranging from bustling city markets to quiet interiors where women put the final touches on their toilette. Dramatic lighting and painterly brushwork speak to the fleeting moments captured on canvas. Working from sketches, paint studies and photos, Robin paints with immediacy, preferring to finish a painting in one session, leaving out details and allowing the viewer to interpret the story to their own ends.
A 32-page catalog accompanies the show and includes full-color images of the featured paintings as well as text and images of work in progress. It will be available on Blurb for $35.
