Robert O'Dea specializes in artistic surface textures, which are inspired by naturalistic forms. Using gold, silver and copper leaf he creates ‘broken’ textures overlaid on to muted coloured grounds. Layers of tinted and opaque varnishes add depth and body to the fissured, cracked and woven surfaces.
Finished work is given a satin or a multi layered high gloss lacquered finish, which adds an extra richness to the surfaces.
Robert's work is widely used by interior designers, architects and collectors of fine art and furniture.
