ROBERT WEISS STUDIO
ON THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII

CORDIALLY INVITES YOU TO
'FROM THE GROUND, UP'

An Exhibition of 40 New Oil Paintings by Robert Weiss
VOLCANO ART CENTER GALLERY,
HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK
October 10th - November 15th, 2015



I first visited Hawaii Volcanoes National Park nearly 30 years ago. Immediately capturing my imagination with its powerful raw beauty, the Park’s capacity to ‘wow’ and inspire has intensified over the years. I’m fascinated by how the Earth moves. In every direction one looks are the rhythms and flows, with vivid contrasts, of an incredibly dynamic and living landscape. Lava flows and pit craters, ʻŌhiʻa and ʻIʻiwi, massive cloud formations and volcanic plumes, all of these and more inspire me and will continue to do so for many years to come. Nearly all the works in the exhibition were painted outdoors directly from life, ‘en plein air’, or in my studio using the field studies as models.  Thank you for visiting and I hope you'll enjoy the paintings. Aloha. ~Robert Weiss

Robert Weiss has over 40 years’ experience as a professional artist in the commercial and fine art fields. While growing up his artistic inclinations were encouraged by a family that included painters, musicians, and writers. In 1973 he began studies at Pratt Institute, including illustration, graphic design, and printmaking. After graduating, Bob worked in New York City as an advertising art director and studio artist. For three years during this period he practiced painting and classical realism at the Reilly League of Artists in White PLains, NY. In 1985 he began practicing the art of scrimshaw and became internationally known as one of the foremost scrimshaw artists in the world, receiving numerous awards for his work. Moving to Hawaii Island in 2006 inspired Bob to paint outdoors frequently, and he now paints full-time, drawing his inspiration from the life and beauty of Hawaii.
