Robert Sweeney's paintings subtly blend the personal with the technical. His paintings, particularly the still lifes, refer not only to the history of painting and the technical aspects of artmaking, but to the inclusion of personal possessions, including references to the artist himself. His landscape paintings depict scenes from locations as varied as Italy, classic views of the Oxbow in western Massachusetts, to his wife, Barbara's, garden in their back yard. Robert Sweeney teaches painting and drawing at Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts.
