Robert Mars' artwork chronicles an evolving fascination with the Golden Age of American popular culture and celebrates the icons of the 1950's and 1960's. His paintings evoke a vintage quality of design and pay homage to the idealized age of growth and hopefulness that was prevalent in the USA at the end of the Depression.
"The minimal and reductive photographs conveyed an intrinsic beauty. Taking from their simplicity, I approach my paintings with a sense of restraint; laying down transparent shapes of color and letting the interaction of hues establish a feeling of depth and dynamic motion within each piece."
