Robert Rea brings an energetic quality to his paintings fueled by his love of music and nature. He creates a lyrical palette and a sense of depth and spatial relationships in each painting by subtly layering carefully chosen colors. His well-trained eye for composition and color relationships inform his own style—reflecting a harmonious and contemporary perspective. His work has been featured in Veranda, Traditional Home, Southern Living, Washington Spaces, and Home and Design magazines. He is currently represented by galleries in Boston, Florida and Dallas. He received a BA in Art History from Vanderbilt University and other, non-art degrees from the University of Alabama and George Washington University. His auxiliary studies include over seven years of periodic study at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C., where he lives and works.
