I have always been fascinated by the shapes of nature found in clouds and cliffs and when a friend started to take photographs of small sections of my work and digitally enhance them, it led to a whole new field of exploration. I discovered that even at a microscopic level the shapes and details of nature are the same.

In this series, I explore how modern technology can enhance the tiny details within my diluted acrylic solutions on canvas. In the last 18 months I have been experimenting with dozens of different methods of application. Some of the most detailed work stem from sections of work that are as small as 1cm square, that can be digitally enlarged to over a metre without losing any detail.

Robs passion is to find hidden worlds of detail in droplets of paint.
