Robert Cottingham lives and works on an eighteenth century New England farm, but the subject matter he paints is strictly urban.  Tattoo parlors, seamy bar fronts, five-and-dime stores, trashy movie marquees, or the advertising on a pancake house are all the urban symbols he utilizes to construct his complex paintings. He ferrets out the architectural details, symbols, and letter fragments of facades from the 1940s and '50s, giving us a glimpse of a true American folk art; garish, tr (showing 500 of 9297 characters).
