ROBERT STANDISH featured in “Black and White” at the Laguna Art Museum

Frederick R. Weisman held an uncompromising belief in the cultural value of art. Laguna Art Museum is pleased to partner with the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation for this special exhibition curated by the Director of the Foundation, Billie Milam Weisman.

In carrying out Mr. Weisman’s intentions, the Foundation continues to collect and make publicly accessible significant works of modern and contemporary art as a means to contribute to the creative and intellectual life of the community. These 30 artworks are a cross-section of works by artists who share attention to black and white—as palate and, in some cases, as theme. This selection demonstrates a diverse array of the artistic approaches, materials, and techniques that Southern California-based artists have deployed over the past half century.

Robert Standish is an American painter living and working in Los Angeles whose organic process reveals the emotive effects of color, shape, and texture. Inspired by the color-field painters Abstract Expressionism, and Abstract Spritualism, Standish’s free-flowing use of paint is his way of exploring abstraction, composition and transcendence. His works can be found in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, JP MORGAN CHASE, The Weisman Foundation,  the Lancaster Museum of Art and History, Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Crocker Art Museum,  Louis K. Meisel, Larry and Marilyn Fields, Patricia Arquette, Norwest Venture Partners, and BRYANT/ STIBEL, along with numerous other acclaimed collections. Standish’s paintings have been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, including group shows at the Carnegie Art Museum, Frederick R Weisman Museum of Art, a duo show with Sam Francis at Martin Lawrence Gallery, and a solo show at the Museum of Art and History, Lancaster.
