This major retrospective of paintings and prints by Royal Nebeker (1945–2014) includes pieces that have never before been exhibited. Nebeker was a preeminent Northwest painter, a skilled printmaker and influential arts educator based in Oregon for 40 years; he also served two terms on the Oregon Arts Commission from 2006–14.

Nebeker’s paintings are defined by an intense personal vision. Throughout his career, the prolific artist focused on psychological themes in dramatic figurative oil paintings and sensitive works on paper, using still life and floral subjects in watercolor and as monotypes. The exhibit includes work from as early as the 1960s to the most current pieces painted shortly before his passing.

Being of Scandinavian descent, Nebeker’s fondness for Norwegian culture is evident in his work. The artist completed postgraduate studies at the prestigious National School of Fine Arts in Oslo, as well as a residency at Edvard Munch’s Ekley studio.

In Nebeker’s elusive paintings, a nexus of relationships exist that draw from the power of memory, history, dreams and experience. Words, quotes and notations, often written in other languages, appear like streams of thought; collage elements materialize in the form of ticket stubs, handbills and other printed material from his travels, further obscuring a sense of time, place and meaning in his dynamic canvases.

Together this multiplicity of elements is filtered into otherworldly scenes, often grand in scale, creating a metaphorical place on the cusp of emotional and physical realms.
