Robert Lemler is an artist based in Phoenix, Arizona who works in all four of the traditional subject areas: figure, portrait, still life and landscape.
In each, his approach is incisive and economical, using a plein air painter’s eye even in the studio to distill the essence of his subject into forceful compositions and strong value contrasts.
Lemler’s color palette is often restrained, but always with a feeling of underlying richness in his muted tones. Negative shapes play a strong part in his compositions, and firmly guide your eye through the images.
In addition to the current and archived works on his website, there is a selection of drawings.
