About This Website


It is a gallery of some artworks by Robert C. Peyser, and a means of raising funds for highly rated environmental charities.


Artist's Statement


To explore, to see, to imagine, and to create
With the abandon of a child, and to
Care about the world we share 
With the love of a parent.


Current Work:


• Photographing and sharing nature's healing beauty, including many overlooked, often small, beautiful details
• Raising money for charities that will help heal our world
• Creating what I refer to as "hypertography." I consider Ansel Adams to be the first true hypertographer due to his dedication to the print as "performance."
• Creating "virtual sculptures"—Works of art that express my sculptural vision but cannot exist physically in three dimensions due to the laws of physics
• Creating paintings where the subject is the life force that I perceive in the world around me rather than a mere naturalistic depiction.


Experience:


Over the years I’ve worked in many mediums and methodologies. I’ve painted in oils, water colors, pastels, and acrylics; I’ve carved soapstone,  limestone, and marble; I’ve modeled water-based clay and oil-based clay; I’ve welded and brazed; I've drawn with pen and ink, graphite, charcoal (I particularly like willow charcoal). I have used computers for decades as a tool for both the imagining and creation of artworks.


Education:


I studied privately under Anthony Padavano and George Peter; I studied under Isaac Soyer at the New School in New York City; I received my BFA from Manhattanville College, and my MFA from SUNY New Paltz. I apprenticed under Seymour Lipton in New York City; I studied marble carving at the School of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts of Carrara Italy, I studied printmaking under John Ross—author of the outstanding book "The Complete Printmaker;" and for over fifty years I have taken photographs and manipulated the final images to express my creative vision. I have taught art to people of all ages from elementary school children in the Scarsdale, New York public school system, to people in retirement facilities. 


Public and other Collections:


My art work is, or has been, on public display at the American Museum Of Natural History, New York, New York; the Oakland Museum, Oakland, California; the Arizona Museum of Natural History, Mesa, Arizona; the Koehnline Museum of Art, Des Plaines, Illinois; the Hartzfeld Building in Kansas City, Missouri; the Citizen’s Bank Building in Flint, Michigan; the Edgemont High School Library in Scarsdale, New York; the University of Michigan’s School of Business Administration’s Executive Education Center, and in various other public and private collections worldwide. I also helped design some early internet sites including those of  People’s Republic of China, Masco Corporation, Internet.com, WebReference.com and CoolCentral.com. Prior to that I worked on multimedia interactive design projects that were installed in the Bellevue Art Museum, Bellevue, Washington; and the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Washington.
