Charles A. Hartman Fine Art is excited to present Recent Paintings, the newest body of work by Oregon-based artist Daniel Robinson. In this stunning new suite of paintings, Robinson illuminates the modern American landscape with stillness and strength. Combining the influence of classic social realists with a contemporary use of light and color, Robinson's paintings are imbued with a fundamental, essential beauty. Lacking in artifice and full of integrity, Robinson's work delights the eye while compelling a deeper contemplation and ultimately, a sustained joy.
Daniel Robinson was born in Buffalo, New York, in 1963. The son of a part-time preacher, Robinson moved from New York to Colorado, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Idaho and then finally to Oregon, where he attended high school and later the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Portland State University, earning a B.A. in Fine Art from the latter in 1991. His first monograph, In Oregon, was published in 2004 by Nazraeli Press, a Portland-based publisher of books on the fine and applied arts. Mr. Robinson lives in Fossil, Oregon with his wife and two children.
