Robert Masla coined the term Spiritrealism in the 1970s to describe as he puts it: how the transcendental can manifest right before us — in the realm of the so-called mundane. His art expresses the spiritual reality within the material elements of everyday life. From his western Massachusetts landscapes to his trompe-l’oeil still lifes to his abstract collages, Masla’s work is unique and teeming with energy.
“My definition of Spiritrealism has evolved as I have over the years, from a limited vision to one that is more universal, I realize now, that I know much less than I thought I did. What I’ve come to understand as Spiritrealism is the process of experiencing my place in the universe as a part of creation and that I as an artist and a human being have the opportunity to participate in the creation. I like to think of each work of art, whether representational or non-objective, as the creation of an energy field that affects the environment and people around it. I want that to be a positive, healing energy, hopefully connecting me and the viewer to the place where we are that energy and experience a unity of being.” -Robert Masla
