SANTA FE, NM, May 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Robert Langford's show Warming Trend
examines the unpredictability occurring last winter and the manner in which that unpredictability affected his paintings. Langford feels there is a complex and visually captivating narrative in last winter's temperature fluctuations. Through his highly abstracted paintings, he presents an in-depth exploration of the winter weather in the Carolina's.
"I gravitate to warm, deeply saturated colors, but I love bringing cool colors into my work as a catalyst," explains Langford. "I wait to see how the composition responds to the changing conditions, how the light finds its way through. The idea of a trend comes from my recent desire to move my art into those iconic, somewhat wild and unpredictable places that are home for me."
Robert Langford has been fascinated by the concepts of color field, action
, and abstract expressionism
for most of his adult life. His earliest impressions of color and texture come from his East Texas upbringing, where he learned to appreciate the beauty of wide-open landscapes. Though he spent his early career in business, Langford continued to educate himself about art. He experimented, refined his technique, and transitioned to painting full time in 2000.
Robert Langford's show opens on May 21 and runs through June 10. The opening reception is Friday, May 23 from 5-7pm. Pippin Contemporary is located at 200 Canyon Road, Santa Fe, NM 87501. For more information, contact Ashley Wilson (505) 795-7476 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
