Bob Jenkins  

Robert Jenkins has been described as a complex and determined personality and his background tends to confirm this impression. 
Living on a canal boat for seven years was what finally gave Robert the isolation nedded to concentrate solely on painting, and during this period he developed the skill and insight which led one newspaper critic to describe his technique as “consumate” and another to call his works “seductively exotic”. 


After paring down his imagery and returning to what he considered to be the root and bases for all subsequent painting, cubism, Robert now paints figurative images that are momentarily distured by traces of cubism. His overriding concerns are to respect the integrity of the canvas in a way that Cezanne might have approved of, and to produce heightened reality that increases the expressive power of the image.
