Bob Stuth-Wade

Bob Stuth-Wade’s landscapes are sublime; the viewer cannot help but be quietly transfixed by his sensitivity to color and profound understanding of luminosity. His paintings exude, and are transformed by, the presence of light. Stuth-Wade’s life of inquiry has endowed in him an endless search for resolution: if a painting came too easily, was it really as good as it could have been? His deep connection with his subjects enriches his understanding of what he paints; he touches on something much greater than the obvious subject of landscapes, still life, or figure. Stuth-Wade’s paintings each possess a uniquely indefinable and intangible psychological element that can most easily be described as a soul. The characteristic nature of his work reveals the endearing sense of humor and sagacity of a man who has lived life, often resulting in the creation of landscapes that operate more as portraits.
