About

Robert Indermaur (American, b. 1947) "Money", 1991 Mixed media oil on paper Signed and dated "Indermaur '91" lower right, numbered verso in pencil "R01 237" Unframed: 40 x 27 inches Robert Indermaur’s paintings capture this bittersweet quality of human experience in a powerful, wonderfully visual fashion. His work makes the unspoken tangible; in his odd, often mysterious images we instinctively recognize our own internal doubts, perceptions, moods, anxieties. Indermaur’s world of muted palettes and deep shadows, isolated individuals, empty rooms, and ambiguous dreams seems to map a kind of universal psychological terrain. The searching characters at the center of this world, who carry on and look for meaning despite the oddness of their circumstances, serve as our allegorical stand-ins, so that ultimately these paintings portray not individuals but something larger and more tentative – the difficulties and tensions of being human. Many of these paintings are strongly narrative, literary, even theatrical. They tell us stories, complete with characters and settings and dramatic tension, but their tales are strange, absurdist, incomplete; they provoke our need to explain. In other work’s Indermaur explores the idea of the theater of man – Humans on display in another sense, by their own choice. An audience is almost never visible in these works; the issue seems to be the individual’s act of exposure, the experience of being publicly “on stage”. Through works like these, Indermaur stimulates us to think deeply about the experience of being human. Sometimes these paintings suggest the artist’s own conclusions; more often they pose open-ended questions, merely hinting at shades of meaning. To solve the puzzles of these painting’s present, we must supply pieces of ourselves.
