Tucker, Rob New Zealand, b. 1987

Rob Tucker is a New Zealand artist living and working in Auckland. 

 

The modest subjects of Tucker's paintings are merely a starting point from which he can freely and boldy stretch beyond the norm; overblown, textural and graphic, his work is an exploration of the limits of colour and composition. 

 

“My treatment of form develops from how a subject presents in my imagination - candid and unrehearsed.  This allows me to play with subject matter to be both personalised and not completely recognisable. Composition, is arranged ad-lib, however always with a consideration of how shape, form and colour off-set one another.”
