Robert Jessups New Paintings
The folks in Texas artist Robert Jessups New Paintings exhibit are strong types. They dont live in fear of carbs or fat grams; on the contrary, these are robust, colorful characters. In Couple in a Landscape, a stout, muscular woman wearing fuchsia and lavender dances with a pink and blue elephant on a cliff. Across the ravine is a man, his arms outstretched, pink tie blowing in the wind, and face turned upward, as if hes pleading with the sky. Endless Childhood shows us a pubescent couple leaning in for a kiss while children with Cabbage Patch Kid features tumble downhill behind them. Jessups characters live in a landscape where gravity is apt to play tricks. In Three Children, a chubby baby in a wagon ogles an ice cream cone floating just out of reach, while a pair of disinterested children stand nearby, ignoring him.
