Currently on view at Andrea S. Keogh Art & Design are paintings by local artist Bob Knox that focus on his passion for paintings by the masters and his own pursuit of beauty.
When you look at the five large paintings by Bob Knox that comprise the exhibition Re-Mastered: Paintings by Bob Knox at the Andrea Keogh Gallery and Design in Litchfield, what you see is not what you get. They seem to be abstract expressionist works, presumably made with a rapid, muscular application of pigment with large brushes. But they are actually highly crafted, labor-intensive, multi-layered constructions based on appropriated historic masterpieces. Knox’s process is original and confounding, and the end result is riveting.
