“For me, painting the world that I live in is a way to re-create it and possess it in a loving, empathetic way. My approach is to build up an assemblage of markings that coalesce into an image that cannot avoid reflecting my emotional response to what I see. Michael Molino, writing about the poet Seamus Heaney, commented: ‘Seeing things involves the realization that whatever is real must invariably be imagined, and that whatever is imagined is then quite real.’” Bob Lafond attended the Boston Museum School, and has an undergraduate degree in Art History (summa cum laude) from Princeton University where he studied under painter Esteban Vicente. He worked at the Princeton University Art Museum for almost twenty years. For the last several years Bob has painted both oils and pastels of country and city landscapes, concentrating on the Berkshires and Brooklyn
