Piece description from the artist
This piece of art was inspired by some art by Agnes Martin, particularly her primary color pieces with horizontal bands.
This piece contains the three primary colors moving from top to bottom, blue, yellow, red, with another repeating blue. The horizontal bands create a sense of depth, both from the use of the horizontal lines as well as from the overlaying of colors. The horizontal colors move straight to the edge of the paper, creating a sense that, in theory, the colors can carry on off the edge of the paper ad infinitum.
Robert Darabos is a current graduate student, studying and residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His most recent body of artwork deals with the use of repetition, optical illusions, abstraction, and mark making. They have an abstract quality to them, though are not necessarily abstract, and almost always contain the motif of a circle, or another geometric shape.
His medium of choice is printmaking, though recently he has been experimenting with collage work, as well as drawing. He has also been working in alternative photography processes, particularly cyanotype, and using the process as a means of fine art instead of photography and creating beautiful one-of-a-kind works of abstraction.
Robert has been showing his work in galleries and exhibitions since 2007 and have had over 50 shows, 9 of them solo, several publications and multiple awards. His work has been shown primarily in Michigan but has also appeared in Chicago, New York, Seattle, Kansas, Arizona, Philadelphia, and North Carolina, as well as internationally in Canada, England, Colombia, Australia, Japan, China, Wales and Malaysia. He has also placed works in personal, private, and permanent collections. His work is featured in international collections in Derbeyshire, England, the Chengdu Academy of Fine Art in Sichuan, China, the Hambis Printmaking Museum in Cyprus and the Museum of Modern Art in Wales, among others.
