About the Artist
A Brief History
Painting in oils, Australian artist Robert Riggs has explored a variety of subject matter over the course of his career as an artist. Currently focussed on the genre of still life painting, Riggs uses his realistically depicted, moody arrangements as a vehicle for exploring the evocative power of light. In particular, his work investigates the way in which simple objects can be imbued with a sense of grandeur, bestowing importance upon the humblest of subjects, through the use of strong light and shadow.
