Reviews


Regarding the artist’s first solo show at Steven Scott Gallery, Baltimore Alternative editor and critic Rawley Grau writes in June 1994:

“Robert Andriulli’s landscapes betray a vision of mysterious, fateful forces that seem informed more by dream than by the light of day. This is most clearly evident in a series...that feature enormous, impossible cloud formations. In Autumnal (1992), a huge cloud-ball fills the center of the canvas, catching the pink light of morning as it floats over the peaceful farmland of a Western Pennsylvania mountainside....Majestic and indifferent, it could be an image of divinity or doom....The meteorological battle between light and darkness, energy and matter, space and weight unfolds before us like the conversation of the Olympians.”

“Andriulli’s fine skill in rendering the quality of light is used to interesting effect...in a series featuring boulders on the coast of Maine where the morning light makes the rocks look almost bloody, and in Suburb, the most visually complex work in the show. Here houses with neat lawns nestle in the shadow of a mountain, the congested industrial city visible in the distance across a river. The suburb seems at once protected and exposed.”
