Robb Williams

Robb first started painting as an infant. His first memory of nursery school is working with clay. Around nine he began drawing and playing the guitar. Initially his paintings were based on complex still lives, but he has now moved into more simple concepts. His current approach to art is that it doesn’t need to be honed down. He is interested in letting dark tones dominate sparse light tones. Occasionally he incorporates words and little jokes into his work. Music and theater are an important aspect of his creative process. For him expression is a series of sources and outlets that share a sculptural element. He calls it “elementary sculpture with abstract paint.” His grandfather was a piano player, his father is a writer and his mother is a painter and teacher. He feels that growing up and working around a teachers influence has inspired him to teach art as well.
