Robert Stark maintains studios in NE PA and Albuquerque. His photographs have been exhibited in a solo exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and his paintings have been exhibited in solo exhibitions at the Phillips Collection, Cheekwood Fine Arts Center, and Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art. Stark's paintings have traveled to over 140 world capitols through the State Department program, 'Art in the Embassies.'
"Every day is a test of each painting's ability to stand on its own. Each painting is subject to being changed, to being reworked or scraped and repainted as long as it remains in the studio. Where I often used to spend weeks on a painting, attempting to 'make a picture,' now my concerns are more about the energy of light, the mass of space, the emotions of shadows."
