(A retrospective)

May 16 – June 27

The FPAC Gallery will be showing a selection of paintings by the late Rob Reeps, from May 16th through June 27th. The reception will be held May 16th from 5:00 to 8:00.  All of the paintings are acrylic on canvas, and were created between 1973 and 2011.

Rob was one of the original members of the Artist Building at 300 Summer Street.  He lived and worked there from 1995 until his death in 2013 after a long struggle with mental illness.

The paintings have a common theme of space, time, and place.  Rob loved the natural beauty of the lakes and oceans that were the subject of most of his work; showing their organic beauty in contrast to man’s destruction of them by pollution and neglect.  His use of particle collision tracks, clouds, measuring devices, dialog boxes (with references to sight, sound, thought, etc) show the relationship of humans to our planet and the universe.  In his later work, Rob used what he called “energy signatures” to create backgrounds for his chosen imagery.
