Robert Meldrum's Art Practice incorporates both Painting, Collage and Sculpture built around line and colour that help unify its sharp changes of tone.

The immediacy of delivery can often be seen as glib but the approach is not to confused with cynicism. However discordant some environments might seem what is most often alluded to is what is survivable, or beyond even our reach. Works using geometric grids allude both to play and industry, as well as pre established art language. The Mondrian like 'Industrial Estate' copies the colours of an X-Wing Fighter, while 'Meteor' pays homage Frank Stellar while inverting his idea crudely to subject. Others use more painterly approaches to build schematic representations of the wild showing Forests and Lakes, and Animals are referenced with a totemic design. Canvas paintings like 'Pirmensus' form bridges with earlier work, with a direct use of motif and a more emotional context. The works each contain very separate ideas unified by line and colour.
The practice forms a composite portrait of landscape both Industrial and Natural as well as the portals of our communication systems themselves.

Robert is represented by Theuer und Scherr in Mannheim, Germany.
Paintings are in Collections in both the UK, Russia and Germany.
