Robert Arnold is an artist in Ottawa.
Landscape and the placement of human figures in a landscape setting have always played a significant role in the subject matter of my art. Often these subjects derive from places that I have visited and people that I have seen and which I then transform to create a new visual representation.
I like to play with the stylistic elements – light, line, colour, shape and texture, often separating them and reassembling them as fragments within confined geometric spaces. In all of my works the development of strong colour and colour combinations that work well together is a prime objective.
Lately I have continued this interest by expanding into digital computer art images. By using scanned digital images of preparatory drawings, templates etc., as well as photographs that I have take, I am by using the computer, able to create a wide variety of new compositions. The final composition is meant to stand alone, on its own, independent of realistic representation, but true to the two-dimensional plane, as a bold visual statement that engages the viewer.
Also, using the computer, I have been experimenting with the creation of photomontage images derived from photographs I have taken, wherein I create "reflections" of the original subjects - a new world of altered realities. While requiring mathematical precision in their creation, the results are often whimsical, puzzling, and perhaps even disturbing.
