Some Place I Remember by Robert Andler-Lipski
Some Place I Remember by Robert Andler-Lipski

We love Robert Andler-Lipski’s collages; they are intricate, unique and even poetic. The latter doesn’t come as a surprise as the artist is also an award winning poet in his native tongue, Polish, with three poetry collections translated into English, German, Lithuanian and Russian.

The painting we chose as our ‘Artwork of the Week’ is an abstract expressionist collage in contrasting colours, such as: purple and yellow, blue and orange and red and green. The vertical and horizontal lines give the artwork a balanced composition and depth while the alternating pairs of complementary bright colours give the artwork rhythm and harmony.

Collage art is an experimental art form that has been established in the beginning of the 20th Century. Artists like Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque were among the first to use collage in their work. In today’s art scene, collage art gives the artists the freedom to experiment with images, ideas and mixed media techniques.

Inspired by nature, the beauty of the human form and elusive emotions, Robert Andler-Lipski’s art is individual and fascinating, inviting the viewer to use their imagination to interpret the images and Some Place I Remember is no exception. What do you see?
