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

Although some of the art practice can almost seen glib the approach is not cynical. However discordant some environments might seem nature is often alluded to as a serene and separate enduring presence. Works using geometric grids allude both to play, industry, signage, 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 as well as the arcade game of the same name. Others use more painterly approaches to build schematic representations of the wild. Forests, Lakes, sometimes with the hint of lost or obscure road. Canvas paintings like 'Pirmensus' form bridges with earlier work with a direct use of motif and a more emotional context. The works in general often contain very separate ideas thematically only linked by a unified line and flat colour.
The practice forms a composite portrait of landscape both Industrial and Natural, play, culture, as well as references to some of our common communication systems themselves.

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