Use of Color in the work of Hubert Roestenburg

Color in the work of Hubert Roestenburg is present as an explosion, an eruption of violence and abundance, a feast for the senses and the mind.  The colors create a symphony, either spread wide or condensed to an intense harmony, playing the artist’s own chosen melody.

He only uses vaguely suggested realism whilst retaining an unmistakable link with the landscape.  This is the essence of the art of painting: creating through color and form a new and irresistible personal reality which reflects the innermost being of the artist running parallel with the reality outside.
