Robert Schatz

Page 1 | Biography


(1)
(1)










Initially inspired by the artists of the New York School and the philosophy and esthetics of Chinese and Japanese art, Robert Schatz has engaged the tenets and practices of abstraction since the late 1980s, pursuing his interest in the structure of pictorial space and the poetics of markmaking. His drawings, monotypes and paintings explore the grace, sensuality, and expressive potential of line.

Thomas Sokolowski, Director of the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has described his work as << lush skeins of finely measured and almost mathematically paced staves of pure feeling. >>
