Member Spotlight- Robert Dye

Robert A. Dye is a professional artist and writer who paints evocative large-scale landscape and abstract paintings and intimate plein air paintings. His large studio paintings are richly painted in light-saturated oils. He paints smaller plein air landscapes in oils and in watercolors. His paintings are held in private collections throughout the U.S. and in Europe. Robert has had numerous one-person shows of his paintings in Philadelphia and in Dallas.

Robert is currently writing a book about landscape painting, whose working title is Landscape Painting and Soulfulness.  

He moved to the Dallas, Texas area in 2011. In 2020 he moved to the shores of Cedar Creek Reservoir, east of Dallas, where he maintains his painting studio.

In addition to receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1988, Robert studied classical painting techniques at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is honored to count the late Louis Sloan and Seymour Remenick as mentors. While in the Philadelphia area, Robert spent countless hours painting plein air in the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey. He also taught painting, drawing and art history at several Philadelphia area art schools, including the Samuel Fleisher Art Memorial and the Hussian School of Art.

Since coming to Texas, Robert has expanded his vision of the intimate landscapes of the East Coast to paint the wide-open vistas of Texas and New Mexico. Robert has also painted in Canada, France, Greece, and England. His paintings straddle the line between representational landscape and abstract imagery, evoking a Turneresque sense of light and space combined with energetic brush strokes and a sensually complex paint surface.

Robert’s story has been featured in the October 2018 edition of DCEO Magazine. He currently teaches landscape painting at the Creative Arts Center in Dallas. You can view Robert’s paintings at and on Facebook at Robert A. Dye Fine Art.
