Robert Steven Connett is a California artist who takes his current inspiration from biological forms – both flora and fauna, micro and macro, land and ocean dwelling – from which he generates new variations, as though he were painting with recombinant DNA. He is a masterful painter of other-worldly creatures harmoniously swimming along in complex dreamscapes. Intricate geometric patterns make up each new species, meticulously painted with illuminated detail. Since he was a child, Robert S. Connett was fascinated by nature. And not just any type of nature, but the tiny worlds that quietly exist without being discovered. This perhaps explains the self-taught painter’s equally fascinating worlds he conjures on a canvas, often in painstaking detail. These ‘underworlds,’ as Connett describes them, are often comprised of densely populated organisms, which are a combination of accurate depictions based on scientific observation, as well as plucked from the artist’s own mind.
