Jungles in Brazil, archways in Morocco, windows in France, the waters of Hawaii and the landscape of the Americas are reflected in the paintings of Robert Bush.
Juxtaposing images of abstracted foliage and exotic environments with multilayered textures, transcendent light and the luminescent color of the natural world, Bush draws the viewer into contemplating the complexity of that which is hidden.
Bush's works on canvas and silk have been exhibited from Manila and Honolulu, to San Diego and San Francisco. His work is in collections in Paris, New York and San Francisco. A National Endowment for the Arts Fellow, Robert Bush attended Yale University and UC Berkeley. He currently lives and works in the Bay Area, California.
