About The Artwork

My digital images are distorted using various tools and filters within an imaging software application resulting in color palettes which can be used individually or combined with other pallets. Landscapes, human forms or objects may appear within these palettes revealing unexpected visual ideas. Additionally figures, objects and faces from pencil sketches scanned and imported into a layer can then be used as a guide for the selection tool or a pen tool creating a space in which to fill in patterns within these figures, objects, or faces which can then be integrated into a new or preconceived theme. “Panta Rhei” Heraclitus of Ephesus 535 – c. 475 BCE) Pre-Socratic Greek philosopher. A native of the Greek city Ephesus, Ionia. A friend recently compared my digital paintings to the Greek philosopher Heraclitus who was famous for his insistence on ever-present change in the universe describing it in two words: “panta rhei”. Literally everything flows, everything is constantly changing, from the smallest grain of sand to the stars in the sky. “No person ever steps in the same river twice”, “the path up and down are one and the same”.

Robert Messick was trained in the traditional techniques of drawing, painting and photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While working as a graphic artist in St. Louis I experimented with screen printing, works of oil on paper and illustration. Retiring in 2004 he is currently working in digital media creating conceptual art pieces in photoshop and with sculpture using 3-D digital printing cast in bronze. “Digital media offers exciting tools to manipulate photographic images and allows the user to explore digital brush and layer effects not possible with traditional materials.”
