Robert Nelson’s major interest is in color, used together with large, simple, energetic symbol like shapes. Mr. John K Sherman, Minneapolis art critic, reported that “the curve and the straight line are used together and this combination moves his art form what would otherwise be austere geometry and rationality of the realm of nature. His bands of color thrust and bend, like living things: they give in their stresses and motion and perform with flexible reaction to the picture’s boundaries and reveal anew his command of flat design and exuberant yet canny color sense.” Minneapolis Tribune, Sun. February 20,1966.
