Rob Doane is an artist living and working in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Energized by the diverse landscape and resplendent light of outer Cape Cod, his abstract paintings, sculpture, and videos engage in a relational dialog between the natural world and the built environment. Rob’s field research, among the ocean, dunes, beaches, ponds and woods of Wellfleet, informs his vibrant color palette. Vast swaths of rich blues and reds are tempered with steely blue gray and charcoal burnishing.
As Herman Melville scribed in Moby Dick, “in landlessness alone resides the highest truth,” Rob Doane, Landlessness asks us to leave our comfort zone and seek a higher truth.
