Robert goes about his art with confidence, humility and pragmatism. He explains, "When you look at things you tend to concentrate on one element, a boy or girl at the waters edge, for example. It's hard to bring into meaniful vision the entire scene at the one occasion. It's all there, but its not defined and it's that which is peripheral to the starting point". The key to impressionism is keying in the peripheral to the starting point".
Although Hagan paints varied subjects, landscapes, seascapes, western, portraits and figurative he insists that his paintings here and there go beyond obvious recognizable subject. This is especially the case now in 2002.
He says "make a painting like the recognizable subject rather than executing a literal representation. It's better to paint the effect of what is there...what is left in the back of the head! That's impressionism, and that I hope is where I am".

Robert Hagan, pittore Australiano, è nato nel 1947 ed ha studiato alla Newcastle University.

Egli spiega: "Quando si guardano delle cose si tende a concentrarsi su un elemento, un ragazzo o una ragazza in riva al mare, per esempio. E 'difficile mettere in visione l'intera scena.
È tutto lì, ma non è definito ed è ciò che è periferico è il punto di partenza. La chiave per l'impressionismo è adattare la periferica al punto di partenza".

Hagan dipinge vari soggetti, paesaggi marine e occidentali, ritratti figurativi.
