Opening Reception First Friday, December 2, 2022
Robert Heilman, a pillar of the local art community, hardly requires an introduction. The highly accomplished Lebanon County artist excels at the treatment and tonal rendering of light and shadows in his works in oil. For the months of December and January, his latest artistic achievements will be on view at Lebanon Picture Frame & Fine Art Gallery. Opening reception is First Friday, December 2nd, from 5PM to 8PM.
Robert Heilman is often considered a photo-realistic painter, though to the artist himself, his work is more about presence and substance, and less about technique. Much of his work in the past centered around the subject of nocturnal small town scenes, which exhibited the same quietness and intimacy as the contrasting pastoral landscapes. The focal points in Heilman’s work are the emotion and the essential qualities a particular setting provokes. Purposefully devoid of human figures, he does not care for social realism as a subject. Rather than injecting a narrative into his paintings, Heilman paints to provoke a response from his viewers. His newest work brilliantly continues his quest to capture these qualities, emotions and responses.
