Contemporary/Robert Pan

Robert
Pan

The impact of the works of Robert Pan derives from their beauty of concept and construction, from the intensity and splendor of their colors, from the exactitude and sure effect of the way those colors are nuanced. 


The pigments are applied in numerous successive layers, sealed in resin, and filed and polished, all in the light of carefully construed relationships between areas of opacity and transparence. Pan’s craftsmanship is the vehicle for the achievement of a multidimensional experience of color in which larger and more complex tones result from the varying articulation of the hues that resonate beneath them.
Robert Pan has always looked askance at the obvious, and has once again decided to voyage into places outside the realms of reason. He complicates our vision of daily experience, leading us beyond the extant and into the Eden of imagination, at the antipodes of objective observation. He allows us to grasp both the visible and invisible, material physicality and immaterial idea, the indeterminate point of view no less than the world of imperceptible detail, the metaphoric flowing of color and the immutable solidification of resins.
