Robert Brown was born in Anderson, South Carolina in 1954. An exceptional painter, he brings out the rich natural colors that are exposed in the true light of the day. Painting on location allows Robert to capture the true essence of his subject matter whether in the mountains of North Carolina on in the piedmont where he lives. Robert received his Bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State University and a Master’s degree from Wake Forest University. He has also studied privately in Charlotte & Asheville North Carolina and in Philadelphia PA. Robert also attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 2002-2004.
Artist Statement: “My work is primarily reflective of the Pennsylvania landscape tradition but, I’m currently shifting towards more urban and architectural motifs. I’m especially interested in applying plein air landscape experience and methods to the painting of architectural exteriors and interiors.”
