new painting in the collection
new painting in the collection
1 model, 2 years of work, 5 paintings, 7 sketches
I’m working on a new collection of paintings and despite temptation I’m not going to share the results just now. It will no doubt take more time before I decide my paintings are ready and form a consistent artistic statement.
Giving oneself a large amount of time nowadays can be seen as nonchalant, but my paintings flourish on the time they are given.
with kind regards, Robert Latoś

Robert Latos in Venice
Venice – a city in which Robert Latos begun his painting journey. Old Masters of painting craftsmanship as Titian or Giorgione gave him to understand how to turn craft into art, a definition of painting so distant from the present, and yet so close to Robert Latos’s works.
Sixteenth-century Ca’ Zanardi Palace will be hosting a collection of Latos’s paintings, becoming a place of confrontation for the artists painterly searches with the city of his masters, in parallel with the 56th Venice Biennale.
The curators of the exhibition are the artist’s long-term art dealer –
Sabiana Paoli and the curator Nicoletta Bacino.
“Robert draws from Balthus’ works in a way similar to that of Balthus when he was seeking inspira-tion in Piero della Francesca paintings, although he did not copy the old master’s works. This is why Robert Latoś seems similarly anachronistic: his beautiful paintings, technically excellent and full of content, are old-fashioned; at first glance they seem unsettling when compared with today’s alleged avant-garde and the artistic ferment it is causing – like Balthus’ works once did.”
“One may suppose that Robert have deliberately chosen such a niche to place himself in the very heart of painting; his works take place in that fraction of a second that separates the figures in paintings from the real world – that fraction of a second which makes the viewers feel they arrived either a bit early or a bit late.”
