For twenty years, Los Angeles painter Robert Standish had been abstracting reality by altering his own powerful and moving photorealistic paintings of daily life. Seven years ago, Standish shifted away from constructing lifelike replicas of the world, and into an investigation of the unconscious unknown through abstraction. His move into an Abstract Expressionist "wet-on-wet" technique developed in tandem with his interests in cosmology, theology, and topography, in addition to psychological theory – namely, Dr. Carl Jung's notion and analysis of the human psyche.

Transcendence being a consistent theme of his practice, Standish's newest work is true to his rejection of the finite, and his proclivity for the universal.

Standish's works can be found in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, JP MORGAN CHASE, The Weisman Foundation, Louis K. Meisel, Larry and Marilyn Fields, Patricia Arquette, David Rogath, Norwest Venture Partners and BRYANT/ STIBEL, along with numerous other acclaimed collections. Standish's paintings have been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, including two recent group shows at the Carnegie Art Museum and a solo show at Museum of Art and History in Lancaster, CA in 2020.
