Smallish Works by Rob Bridges

Smallish Works by Rob Bridges

Art Show, Art Talk
Rob Bridges’ work is influenced by dreams, old tales, and the mysterious. His work is narrative in nature and is inspired by stories imagined wholly in his own mind. These are fragments of tales from a land called The Thousand Weed Marsh. Bridges likes to think of these as scenes ripped from a larger story, like drawings cut from worn and dusty children’s books from years gone by. His goal is to pique the viewer’s interest and to leave them to imagine the rest of the story. His influences draw heavily from the classic period of illustrative work from days gone by. Bridges seeks to celebrate its wonder, whimsy and beauty through his art. Rob Bridges is a native of Los Angeles, California and holds a BFA in Fine Art from Cornish College of The Arts in Seattle. Bridges’ art has a timeless feel with a dark and whimsical edge. He is often asked how he came to be interested in illustrative art. He replies, “I grew up in Los Angeles, where my school lacked proper funding for learning materials. My father, an artist himself, would get me to read my photocopied primers by drawing pictures on the books endpapers. His attempts missed the mark, and I became more fascinated with the drawings than learning to read. I began honing my craft by making drawings on the inside of my father’s books, much to his chagrin.”
