Brighton’s John Marchant Gallery presents Robert Sosner’s new works; entitled SOS, the exhibition is characterised by bold use of colour and bright abstract shapes in the artist’s usual style.
Working with canvas and paper, Sosner paints thoughtful and eye catching compositions, playfully leading the viewer’s eye across his works. His creations are enriched by varying textures sometimes visible beneath the paint, with some works also hinting at the artistic process through the inclusion of alternative colours in the final piece.
Sosner invites viewers to engage and experience his paintings subjectively, aiming to add a little magic to everyday life:
“Overt narrative is avoided and I invite the viewer to find their own way in to each painting to experience something powerful, intangible and at the same time meditative, when looking at the work.”
Born in London, Sosner studied at the Chelsea School of Fine Art attaining a BA Hons in Fine Art – he has since exhibited widely in London, while also working on commission in a variety of private and commercial projects.
Sosner has been the recipient of Pollock Krasner Foundation and Spanish Government scholarships. He currently lives and works in Brighton.
