Robert Coulter    Art for the Mind's Eye

 

Artist Statement

Art lives, I believe, in a world of imagined possibility--a world in a constant state of becoming.  Each of my works begins not with a preconceived plan or idea, but with a splash or two of colour.  The painting grows from the possibilities in this basic gesture, taking on its own life and evolving as each new shape, colour or line invites further response.  Of course the intuitive flow is tempered by the application of learned principles of art, but the process, overall, is an imaginative adventure in which I hope the viewer will feel invited to share.
