Bob Aldous

What do you see when you look at a painting by the artist Bob Aldous?

 

Abstract, landscape, water, sky, space, poetry; these are the usual responses.

There is a sense of balance revealed through the delicate translucent veils of ink, watercolour and acrylic, laid over a carefully prepared silk canvas or Arches paper. These paintings are absorbing and meditative and leave the viewer with a feeling of peaceful wellbeing after the visual encounter. However this is not a shallow peace - the images have an intensity that remain with you.
