Never Knowing Why will be on display in the Waterfront Gallery form the 10 January, this is an opportunity to hear Robert talk about his work
Robert Priseman is an artist who has spent the past decade exploring the darker side of human nature in an effort to expose its gentler and more understanding heart. Believing that fundamentally we are all kind and share a desire to help each other, the thought that we can also be cruel, destructive and vindictive is a great mystery to him. Fueled by the desire to understand what motivates us to behave in the ways we do Robert has tackled subjects in his paintings as wide ranging as the Holocaust, suicide and civil war.
Building on these previous series Robert now presents a selection of new works looking at the phenomena of high school shootings in the USA.
