Robert Brooks
Robert Brooks - Original Oil Paintings


Robert Brooks follows in the tradition of the Northampton Realists, but with a unique style that is all his own. Rob’s work focuss on urban scenes, seascapes, American contemporary icons and, in his words,"kitsch." His use of vivid color and deliberate brush strokes yields realistic yet thought-provoking images of the modern world, with a hint of the surreal. Educated at the Institute of Art in Boston, Rob currently lives in Rhode Island.  

Rob Brooks, who is viewed as one of the most interesting young artists on the Cape, is on the edge of his future.  His art, which is large, confident, and enthusiastic, is also meditative.  Brooks’ work suggests the influence of impressionism, realism and surrealism combined with his own sense of composition and balance, as well as daring color and a deliberate brush stroke, to create a unique, compelling style.”
—Cape Cod Life Magazine 

The success of Brooks’ most recent works depends on the relationships he creates between different figures in the paintings; between figures and objects; between figures and place.  These relationships provide a vessel into which the viewer brings their understanding of time and hierarchy of value in regard to each of the particular relationships”
