Martin Lawrence Galleries Presents: Robert Deyber

An Exhibition of Exclusive Works

April 9, 2021 - May 31, 2021

Section

Robert Deyber’s artwork is full of surprises. Every canvas revels in the artist’s sense of humor, each painting a visual rendering of a clever turn on a common phrase. Despite his sense of fun, however, Robert Deyber is a seriously skilled painter. He is endlessly intrigued by visual imaginings that reside in the realm between reality and fantasy, and he is clearly able to render these imaginings brilliantly. His artwork is highly narrative in nature; his paintings convey an almost dreamlike quality to the bemused viewer.

Throughout his paintings, Deyber moves in and out of visual themes and story lines. Compelled to create imagery where he uses a combination of highly stylized composition, light and contrasting colors, his goal is to apply all three skillfully, thereby drawing the viewer into his painting without overpowering or confusing.

Deyber is a ‘visual raconteur’—a storyteller with a paintbrush, his mind’s eye planted deep within the subconscious. With artistic roots that hail from the Surrealist movement, among his heroes are Rene Magritte and Salvador Dalí. While many of Deyber’s paintings contain elements derived from dreams created out of the unpredictable imagery found in the subconscious, the extraterrestrial flowers have more in common with the worlds of alternate natural history imagined by Alexis Rockman or Walton Ford, and the visual rendition of current phraseology and popular culture are more in the tradition of the Pop Art movement. It is, in the end, the undecided tone between sincerity and irony that makes Robert Deyber’s artwork distinctly contemporary, his visual vocabulary distinctly his own, but with a worldwide audience.

Robert Deyber’s career has taken him all over the world. He lived for a while in the Umbria region of Italy, and also lived for a time in San Francisco and New York before moving to Boston. He currently resides in Connecticut and is exclusively represented by Martin Lawrence Galleries.
