"Painting is tough to tie down. It's hard, if not impossible to put into words something that speaks on it's own".
...............says artist Robert Hagan of his impressionist paintings.

Born in 1947 and raised in the lush, languorous sub-tropical northern  New South Wales, Australia and educated at Newcastle University, he communicates in a typical offhanded Aussie manner.  Widely traveled with studios in Suffolk, England., San Diego, USA., Southport, Australia and Pattaya, Thailand, Robert goes about his art with confidence, humility and pragmatism.  He explains, "When you look at things you tend to concentrate on one element, a boy or girl at the waters edge, for example.  It's hard to bring into meaniful vision the entire scene at the one occasion.  It's all there, but its not defined and it's that which is peripheral to the starting point".  The key to impressionism is keying in the peripherel to the starting point".

Although Hagan paints varied subjects, landscapes, seascapes, western, portraits and figurative he insists that his paintings here and there go beyond obvious recognizable subject. This is was especially the case in 2002. He says "make a painting like the recognizable subject rather than executing a literal representation.  It's better to paint the effect of what is there...what is left in the back of the head!  That's impressionism, and that I hope is where I am".
