Robert Pepper
An evolution of art and career or The relationship between art and artist
Born in 1959 Robert Pepper emigrated from Manchester, England to the U.S.A. in 1984. His artwork is said
to have “…fused a rich European avant garde painting tradition with a post-modern American vision and is
internationally acclaimed for flawless mastery of the technique of oil painting combined with the passionate
creation of images wrapped in their own enigmas. His unexpected juxtapositions of color and form forge new
connections between memory and reality. A strong neo-romantic impulse pervades his best work with spiritual
roots immersed in Cubism, Surrealism, and Expressionism. His decidedly contemporary urban imagery is
filtered through his personal experiences in the gritty post-industrial cities of Manchester and Reading at the
end of the twentieth century.”
(Robert Metzger, Director, Reading public Museum)
