A few Words with Robert Heilman

Robert Heilman, 10th Street Bridge, 6 x 9 inches, oil on board

I recently spoke to September’s artist, Robert Heilman. Robert describes his intimate paintings as “genre paintings of little towns and landscape.” He says, “The nocturnes the night landscapes have tonality. I try to keep the color close and set off little notes of emotion. I want to make the paintings accessible. They are a quick response and I hope to provoke a response in someone. Art is a shared experience otherwise it is just the artists navel gazing and what’s the point in that. I paint so people will respond to it.”

I asked Robert about his career as a painter. He said that he has been painting for 40 or 45 years. When he was in school, he painted the figure but after graduating, he wanted to paint what was around him. He began painting landscapes and small town scenes. What he calls “the real things all around me.” He looks at his paintings as “a failure in a way. Every time you paint you are trying to get it right and maybe you will get it in the next one.”

New Talent: Nick Weber

F.A.N. Gallery is please to show the paintings of Nick Weber. Nick is an award winning artist and a graduate of Stanford University. He shows in New York and the Hamptons. Nick’s beautifully textured paintings of figures emerging out of shadow  are wonderful. His nocturnes depict points of light that faintly illuminate a setting.

What draws you to painting the figure? Do you like to paint the figure in your own studio or do you like to see the figure in their own environment/home setting?

“I think I keep painting the figure because I am one myself.  The impulse to paint is similar to the impulse to touch.”

What is your first creative memory or the first time you connected to something artistic?

 “When I was 7 I won the Kellogg’s ‘Stick up for Breakfast’ contest… a nationwide contest where kids drew Snap, Crackle ‘n’ Pop, Tony the Tiger, etc. I won a ten speed bike!   Then I became obsessed with drawing baseball and football players: Tony Dorsett, Terry Bradshaw.  I just found a few from 30 years ago, they have great rhythm.”

Come by the gallery and check out Nick’s work.
