"He translates observations into images that tell a story - and he does it as the best artists do,
by finding and capturing the spirit of a scene so the the viewer doesn't see just the moment
as represented on canvas, but also feels it."
Amy Lent, Executive Director, Maine Maritime Museum.
"The line in my notebook dealing with Robert Beck's monumental canvas 'Tightrope' is a series of exclamation points, which stands for the impression left by the work but also applies to the exhibit where I saw it."
Gwen Shrift, The Intelligencer
Robert Beck’s work illustrates the remarkable latitude of unsentimental
visual stimulation that that he translates for the rest of us. His art is the language by which
he reveals small truths in a noisy world
Carol Cruikshanks, Executive Director, New Hope Arts
"His subjects speak with a personal language that any viewer can distinguish and understand. Such embedded
observation and rendering are uncommon today."
Chris Hall, Curator of Exhibits, Maine Maritime Museum
