Snarling Lap Dogs & Smiling Slices of Cheese

About the recent work of painter Robert Roest Robert Roest transforms the glistening highlights of puppy-love into icy gazes of destruction in his latest series titled (Hades) Indoor feelings, and single-door kennels in your soul (2020). Each composition is dominated by a hell-born dog on overdrive, its monumental body arching above us like a house-trained, mythological beast.
