The Landscape of Stone:

Abstract art inspired by the surface of stone 

Robert Coury pulls inspiration for his ongoing body of work, “The Landscape of Stone”, literally right from the California soil. Spending some time along the Pacific Coast, and being the consummate collector that his is, Coury began to notice that each water worn stone he put in his pocket contained it’s own (spirit) painting. Every shift in color, inclusion, or vein lent itself to the overall landscape of that stone’s surface. In these colors and lines Coury began to see abstract paintings just waiting to be expressed. Having only dabbled in an abstract fashion before, “The Landscape of Stone” is Robert Coury’s flagship endeavor down the road of abstract expressionism. Using skills gleaned from three years studying under Master Faux Finisher, Lance Ossman of North Miami, Coury uses acrylic paint and watercolor to build up layers of texture and color in an attempt to recreate the peaks and valleys that time has etched into each gem-like stone.
