Adelaide, Australia based artist Robin Eley has a rare technical grasp of his medium. Usually working with oil paint on Belgian linen, Eley often depicts the human form in extremely realistic detail. Additionally, his work is filled with interesting texture, angles, and lighting. While taking a cue from the photorealist group of painters, Eley strives to go beyond just what is explicitly painted. His work is also filled with metaphor, allusions to spirituality, and classical painting. Eley references the style of renaissance and baroque paintinger with a modern style and with modern concerns.
