NewsArtist Rob Nadeau Visits Marlboro College
Marlboro, VT—Artist Rob Nadeau’s exhibit Canned Heat will be on display in Marlboro College’s Drury Gallery from Monday, October 29th through Friday, November 30th. Nadeau will give an artist’s talk in the gallery on Tuesday, November 27, at 4:00 p.m.
Influenced by the history of abstract painting and elements of pattern and pop culture, Rob Nadeau is interested in creating paintings that “hover between the abstract and a loose reference to the ‘real’.” He uses a variety of mark-making techniques-—scraping, washes, impasto brush strokes, airbrush and collage—to achieve both balance and contradiction in his work.
“My aim is to create a space where I can engage myself and the viewer in an internal dialogue and an external process, hopefully challenging the criteria through which we perceive,” says Nadeau.
Nadeau received an M.F.A. at Rhode Island School of Design and has exhibited his work throughout New England, New York and Europe. In 2007, he had an artist’s residency at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs.
The Drury Gallery is open Sunday through Friday from 1PM through 5PM while the college is in session. Admission to the gallery and to the artist’s talk is free and open to the public.
