Robert Shirk - Artist

Welcome

My Neo-Pointillist figurative paintings are created on multiple sheets of layered plexiglass. Each sheet of clear plexiglass contains a part of the final image. The effect creates a 3 dimensional kinetic painting that moves and changes as the viewer’s perspective changes.

"Mina" - 03/24/21.

Acrylic paint on 2 sheets of 18"x24" plexiglass on top of 3 sheets of 24"x32" plexiglass.

I just finished this painting of Marina Lane (Mina).

This painting is done with acrylic paint on 2 sheets of 18"x24" plexiglass on top of 3 sheets of 24"x32" plexiglass. I am very excited to incorporate silkscreen stencils to make the halftone pattern on this painting.

The Pointillist painters of the late 1800's were interested in using dots to visually mix colors. They used dots of different colors to simulate blended colors. For example, if dots of two colors are placed next to each other, from a distance they look like a third distinctive color. This Neo-Pointillist painting 'Mina' is my latest example of that Pointillist technique of mixing colors.
