Robert Schlegel’s acrylic paintings explore the tension between the representational and the abstract. He responds to structures, landscapes and animals in their surroundings with works on panel or canvas and often includes collaged materials in these images. Schlegel begins with a sketch in charcoal, graphite, or oil pastel, and then develops the image either in studio or en plein-air. Schlegel also explores three-dimensional forms. Using paper, wire, string, and fabric, he sculpts “gestures” capturing the posture and movement of birds and figures.
