Western Project

Working primarily in oil on canvas, but also in video sketches, Chad Robertson presents psychological portraits of facial expressions of emotion, such as laughing and screaming, using digital photographs and videotaped interviews to capture his subjects’ movements and gestures. Speaking of working with video, Robertson says, “a whole unconscious world opens us, these nuances come up, even of an eye blink, or a sigh, or even a yawn.” Robertson has also produced paintings of scenes and imagery from zombie movies. He cites Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon, Eric Fischl, and Bill Viola as major influences.
