Robert LaDuke: The Nearing Path - Artist Q&A

September 18, 2020 - Kelly Carper

I’ve been painting more structures lately such as diners, motels, and gas stations with a Route 66 feel, but that are mostly made up. I have also developed interest in buildings that resemble the objects they sell or in some cases just objects. “Mimetic” or “novelty” style architecture is what it’s called, such as a coffee cup shaped cafe, cowboy hat shaped store, a Zeppelin shaped restaurant, etc.


Robert LaDuke: Anamnesis

September 11, 2019 - Kelly Carper

Memories of family members and childhood experiences are often layered in LaDuke’s paintings as obscure references that remain unknown to the viewer. The artist isn’t necessarily trying to keep his sentiments a secret; he just wants to give the viewer an opportunity to bring their own meaning or story to the painting. “I like it very much when the viewer connects a personal memory or experience with something they see, or perceive to be happening, in a painting,” he says.


Robert LaDuke: Recollection

September 4, 2018 - Kelly Skeen

Robert LaDuke’s illustrative paintings have a nostalgic quality as his subject matter consists of vehicles, homes and fashions that reference earlier eras. His vintage portraits of idyllic, Rockwell-esque American lifestyles stem from personal memories and experiences, but are often layered with surreal visions.

His travel-inspired imagery takes us on cross-country road trips past rising skylines, across bodies of water, through peaceful forests and barren deserts. 

Her work evokes humorous and mystified responses as the viewer navigates its deceptive illusions.
