About this Artist

Robert Kuester

"I create paintings with strong and lasting artistic quality. I believe that a thing of beauty is a joy forever. My hope is that others will see and feel the beauty I have found or created in my subjects."

Robert Kuester is not a photo realist, but rather begins with the randomness of nature, subtly transforming it into a heightened state of beauty and permanence through organization and design and the stamp of his personal sense of beauty. This process remains his motivation to be a painter.

As an Alla Prima painter, Kuester love the beauty in brushwork, exploiting it for its own sake while the image manifests as a believable representation of his subject. Kuester also believes in the experience of Plein Air painting for developing a real depth of understanding regarding landscape.

Robert Kuester's art education began in earnest with two years at Drake University in Iowa, then a transfer to The Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles to obtain a BFA. In 1986, Robert Kuester left a successful career in illustration in Detroit and moved to New Mexico. Study with painters such as Ovanes Berberian, Michael Lynch, Irby Brown, and others have helped. Robert Kuester developed the mastery he now displays.
