Richard Roblin, ‘Parallel Universe II’, 2014, Galerie d'Orsay

Inspired by his passion for architecture and design, Richard Roblin’s brilliant, jewel-toned contemporary paintings are exhibited and included in collections such as that of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Through pursuing his vision of luminous clarity, Roblin's worldly travels have taken him throughout North America, the Orient, India and Europe. Imbibing the teachings of many cultures and influenced by nature, Roblin sees “each canvas as an open door, a dance circle, a symphony of breath breathing its life through the action of the artist.”

About Richard Roblin

Richard Roblin’s meditations on form and color, shape and texture reveal a keen understanding of the natural world and our relationship to it as stewards of the earth. Through careful layering of paint and an archaeological precision in the revelation of things hidden, Roblin crafts works of quiet beauty and power. While it could be said that his background as an architect informs his artistic practice—a duality that he has fostered his entire life—it seems equally appropriate to suggest that Roblin’s spiritual journey of self-discovery and inner reflection have honed his perception of the world and sing through his painting.
