Robert lardus paintings from the PoliProfiles series are abstract paintings in the Hard-Edge style, in which abrupt transitions are found between color areas. Color areas are often of one unvarying color. Robert uses this style to show the multi-layeredness and complexity of human nature. The figures in the paintings are very enigmatic, even invisible, hidden under abstract forms. Robert Lardus excels in suggestion, does not impose his vision, does not speak directly. The viewer's brain demands that what penetrates his consciousness has a shape and its cause, but when this request is not met, it fictionalizes and as a result creates surprising, changeable, changing interpretations.
Shipping & Returns
Based in: Dublin
Robert Lardus is vegetarian, buddhist, and abstractionist. All three factors combined are rare where he comes from: the deep Midwest of the United States of America. He studied painting and then went on a long journey through Asia. This is where he started his transformation. What we see now is a full-grown artist submerged in transformative nature, influenced by biological processes, anamorphic shapes.
Robert lives in a world of forms and colors. He cultivates his individual perception of the world, looking for simple, but sumptuous beauty.
His technique is based on layers and texture paint. Robert’s artworks can be associated with richly woven renaissance tapestry in which the colors are distilled from the experiences of multiple senses.
Lardus is fascinated by process painting. He invented dozens of original painting techniques. His “Humanography” combines the idea of writing abstract characters with icons depicting the human being as individual or submerged in a community.
