Journeys to the Interior

Robert Nason has been painting for 70 years! In his recent Portland exhibit entitled, Journeys to the Interior, he had the opportunity to display his lifetime of work.

Born in 1923 in Rhode Island, Mr. Nason attended the R.I. School of Design and later Brown University, although his studies were interrupted by WW ll.  After training as a naval officer, he left for the Philippines on the very day that Germany surrendered, ending the war in Europe. The war with Japan ended when he was in Leyte Gulf.

After returning to the US, he re-entered Brown, where he was active in the theater, simultaneously taking classes at the School of Design from which he graduated in 1949.

According to Mr. Nason, his artistic life has been dominated by Freud and Picasso. He feels that his art is based on shaping images that reflect his inner and outer world – and that he approaches the millennium at an accelerated momentum, sustained emotionally by his involvement with art and the enthusiasms of his children.
