Les peintures sur soie de Robert Bush distillent un univers toujours changeant de révélations en utilisant des éléments sélectionnés du monde naturel. Ils révèlent un lien avec les beautés de la nature qui nous rajeunissent, et, en même temps, ils travaillent d'une façon abstraite pour augmenter nos perceptions de ce monde, et, même pour nous emmener au delà, vers des rythmes et des desseins intérieurs et cosmiques.
