The artist, Robert Finale, is no stranger to struggles and adversity. At the tender age of two, he, along with his family, left the country of Cuba for a life of freedom and opportunity in the United States. Here Robert learned the value of hard work and discipline and realized his potential to pursue his passion for art. This passion, Finale explains, began very early in life. As a young boy of five, he was seldom without a pencil and sketchpad in hand, sketching everything from movie scenes to family vacation destinations. His love for brushing oil onto canvas came much later when his early childhood sketch was brought to life in a special gift to his wife. From humble beginnings, today, his paintings grace several Galleries all over the country. The first, however, has a special place in his family home. His images originate from his childhood sketches, which his mother always lovingly treasured and encouraged him to keep. Each painting is a journey of unspoken words and hidden whispers of freedom, nurturing the hopes and dreams that exist within all of us. These feelings are resurfaced and unveiled through beautiful city images in romantic surroundings placing the viewer in the dream world of unconscious thoughts.
A quiet, gentle natured man, Robert uses his paintings to communicate with each person. Using vibrant colors and textures, Finale has developed his rich vocabulary in a painting. Expressing this rich language through places and entities allows him to tap into his world and the fragile emotions that exist within all of us. The emotion that a person feels upon examining a piece of art is the beauty of this communication. As Robert places the final brush strokes on the canvas, he is conscious that art is a universal language. Therefore, one canvas represents the window to millions of different emotions that exist and exist through all of us, giving the viewer a powerful tool to look within his world and understand life’s journey.
