Statement

Born April 1957, in the Inwood section of upper Manhattan, NYC… Robert Eustace attributes his eventual ‘calling’ in Art to various central roots: playtime in the surrounding Park Systems ‘primeval wilderness’; discovering mystery and wonder amongst the art, fragrances and shadows found within the traditional catholic church and being mentored by the primitive expressionist painter, Peter Dean (1934-93).

“I am primarily interested in space… or the charting of a deeply personal and resonant space, as it relates to mysticism and memory. In the ever changing realm of artistic creation, I am forever searching for a zone, an open space, a place of calm to call my own, an area open to imagination and revelation…. I am likewise interested in following ‘the ambient sound’ that ever calls to me and informs my life…. I seek to capture the fragile sparkling of the last interstices (here at the end of time), as I reach in faith out to the void, create and pull something of substance back into the here and now”.

“My current work in Art is based upon two related series: ‘Aenigmate’, Ikonic Altarpiece Constructions in Mixed-Media and since 2010: ‘Tree of Souls’. My images likened to illuminated manuscripts, ikons and reliquaries, stem from my studies in art history, music, philosophy, alchemy, mysticism and the Bible. They pertain to themes of: the life of Mary… Christ’s passion… the current collapse of existing structures… ancient architectural plans, maps, diagrams, labyrinths… the window as portal to mystery and grace… the park as model paradise garden. ‘Aenigmate’ means: That at the present time, being earthbound and limited in finitude – to see and ascertain only the dimmest of shadows of what truly ‘is’ and is to come; like the distorted view that comes from looking through a dark or opaque glass. I seek to convey something of the ‘mysterium tremendum’ – or a visual approximation of the experience of awe, divine mystery and a terrible beauty”.
