My name is Robert Landry, welcome to my On Line Fine Arts Studio Gallery
Fine Artist Robert Landry: Painting, Drawing and Sculpture Commission work! Please feel free to make inquiries, leave comments or extend your acquaintance through my contact page.
Welcome friends, to my on line gallery! If you haven’t already done so, I would like to encourage each of you to enjoy the subtle transformations taking place visually within the animated vantage points taking place above, as they will reveal three of my sculptural works entirely in the round, just as they were meant to be observed live and in three dimensional space. Furthermore, it is my hope that you (my visitors) might consider the titles of my work, as they are meant to perform as part of the overall expression. As for the written content, I propose some personal and aesthetic insight regarding the nature of my creative efforts if one should wish to relate to them through my perspective. All of which (in one way or another) point to the approach and the perspective that seems to be inspiring my current book project. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST, PATIENCE AND CONSIDERATION!.
Robert L. Landry of Landry Fine Art Studios!
What I offer here is a brief summation, an impression of my life long love affair with Fine Art and the integrity I believe I bestow upon its altar. This is an affair that started with my earliest sand box adventures, before my intuitions became threatened by the demands of controling forces.
Having pursued an undergraduate and graduate degree in Fine Art, and having made a serious practice out of creating art ever since, means that my work as an artist has always played a serious role in the development of my conscious awareness and is therefore synonymous with its maturity and evolution. Having instructed art for a period, has afforded me the opportunity to pursue the act of creating art as a form of self inner-disciplinary practice, and the opportunity to mentor others in our community through the benefits of this practice.
A practice that has provided me with the opportunity to treat the performance value of participating in the creative process as a work of art in and of its self, defining the finished product, as merely the legacy of the journey that provides the opportunity for further reflection, contemplation and community discourse.
What I have discovered, is that by emphasizing an intuitive approach to the creative process, we can transform each creative journey into a vehicle through which we can personally learn and grow from, allowing each journey the opportunity to shape the way we view the world and conduct ourselves within it. My own creative experiences have taught me, that by focusing on my intuitive responses, they naturally reveal those values that are inherent to my intuitive nature, values that have a way of influencing my capacity to respond objectively (selflessly) to my surroundings.
This approach to the creative process allows my creative efforts to explore and develop my own authentic relationship with the source of my intuitions without bias, thus it enhances my ability to utilize the course of the creative experience as a means of penetrating and expressing what it means to be human from an intuitive perspective, as opposed to an egoic one. Either way, what I get is the opportunity to openly explore, and therefore express my own authentic relationship with the former: One that seeks to discover the objective truth as opposed to a subjective one, while the latter (by its very nature) strives to manipulate it for the benefit of its own subjective needs and desires.
By having chosen the route of the former, what you see before you are expressions that I have pursued through an intuitively playful approach to the creative process; expressions that have arisen from my conscious effort to mentally respond to those intuitive impulses as they come to me through the spontaneity of the improvisational element. This is where the creative process has a way of naturally drawing out my ability to creatively synthesize each of my creative decisions in response to the objectively that is naturally inherent to those gut feelings that come to me throughout the act of creating, which is the alternative to those of my subjectively driven egoic dictations. Subsequently, it is my hope that these works manage to inspire within others –such profoundly intuitive responses that they in turn inspire such profoundly intuitive journeys of their own!
Hence, I encourage my viewers to take note of my titles, for they have a way of pointing one towards the depth of their intuitively inspired intent.
