Bob Ichter

Bob Ichter is best known for his brilliantly colored, stylized landscapes in pastel on suede and acrylics on canvas, reverse acrylics on plexiglass, acrylic and resin 3-d koi, and abstract acrylic and oils on canvas. His color saturated landscapes and dragonflies convey his passion for the beauty of nature and his intense abstract works show his depth of imagination and spontaneity.

Carl A. Linstrum:
“When one looks at the abstract plexiglass works of Ichter, there is no mistaking that it is from the hands of a master. His natural ability to combine rich color, dynamic form, and to capture the transient, memorable qualities of light are truly unique. He has taken his interest in travel and music as an inspiration point, allowing for subtle references to specific spaces and places while still managing to remain universal and evocative. Working quickly and intuitively, his pastel works evolve as if they are just flowing out of his subconscious, through his hand and out onto the black suede surfaces he works on. To watch him work is to witness the dance of creativity, an activity he often shares by ‘performing’ his work in public venues.

To put it simply, Ichter gives us the places we would like to go to and linger. The landscapes of our dreams and memories. It is a true and significant gift to the world.”
