Bob Girasek

About the Artist …

Bob moved to northern California from Pennsylvania 35 years ago. The light and colors of California are so different that even the emotional themes of his work changed. He works in oils on canvas.

Having begun his work in Realism, he soon found himself immersed in Expressionist and Impressionist works. While fascinated with women’s faces and the female form, he’s been creating chimeras for the past several years. He believes that human-animal combinations better reveal their true natures, and can elicit their secrets even as they try to hide them. His women become cats and horses; the men, goats and dogs. Still, anyone can be many animals at a given time.
