Born and raised in coastal Alabama, Brad Robertson paints with a distinctive style that invites the mind to wander across layers of color and texture. Robertson aims to evoke the eternal, looking for innovative ways to combine color and texture while creating an expression of multi-layered shorlines, endless horizons, and seeming portals of bold color. Brad says that his paintings are a direct expression of the Gulf Coast landscape that he calls home, and that he views every piece as a part of him. "When I begin a painting, I have a vision in my mind of what it should look like. Then the paint quickly takes the wheel and shows me who is in charge."
