Robert Brodesky

Robert P. "Bob" Brodesky, an artist based in the Boston-area, has been painting all his life. He specializes in figurative painting in an expressionistic style, rendered in oils, paint stick or pastels on canvas, paper, and wood. He likes working big – a surface big enough to allow him to be expansive, and physical.

Brodesky's work features human figures captured in a particular instant, a pivotal moment when something changes. The viewer is invited to participate, enter the moment, and offer his or her own take on the situation and where it might lead. His style--expressive and gestural--focuses on the dynamics of human relationships, and is drawn from his own personal experience.

Brodesky, who grew up in New York, studied art at the Brooklyn Museum Art School, State University of New York at Binghamton and the Maryland Institute College of Art, and earned an MA at the University of Pennsylvania, Graduate School of Fine Arts. He has participated in solo exhibitions and group shows in Colorado, where he lived prior to settling in Boston. Most recently his paintings have been in shows at Matter and Light Fine Art Gallery, Boston, ArtProv Gallery, Providence, Dedee Shattuck Gallery, Westport, MA, South Shore Art Center, Cohasset, MA, Wall Gallery, Norwood, MA, Mystic Art Museum, Mystic, MA and 334 Gallery, Milton, MA. His work is included in corporate and private collections across the country.
