  3. 3. robertmcclintock Artist Biography His work requires the eye of a photographer, the hand of a painter, and the heart of a visionary. It also calls for canvas or paper, a camera, various computer gadgets, and immense amounts of creativity and skill. But it doesn’t have a name and, to some experts, it isn’t art. Welcome to the world of Robert McClintock. Art lovers are buying Baltimore Artist McClintock’s work with great enthusiasm. His images are brilant in color, familiar, and meaningful. They connect with people in a down-to-earth way, invoking warm memories. As one buyer recently summed it up, “I like that you don’t have to get intellectual about it, it’s so vibrant and alive and makes you feel like you’re right there.” In simplest terms, McClintock’s work starts as original digital photography, moves through an intricate process of physical manipulation at the artist’s hand using various digital tools, then gets printed on canvas or paper as something called a giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY). For his limited edition pieces, McClintock imparts further touches with acrylic gels (on canvas) or pastel pencils (on paper), adding yet another artistic input. “Like any artist, my work is just an expression of who I am and where I’ve been,” said McClintock. “The fact that it seems to be reaching people emotionally is really validating.” Growing up just south of the ski resort town of Mt. Snow, Vermont, McClintock got his first professional photo shoot with a local theater troupe while still in high school. After some travel and a long reincarnation as a starving artisit/waiter/bartender McClintock returned to his hometown of Brattleboro, VT and became a regionally acclaimed photographer. Shooting portraits, special events, and a variety of catalog and commercial projects, he learned early the importance of composition—from a variety of sources, including one that’s a bit unconventional. “My mother would be shocked to find out her 14-year-old was mentored by the local crime scene photographer,” said McClintock. “He was an artist with a badge, and he taught me how to be sure people’s eyes were drawn to the key elements in my photos.” But pure photography, even in his early years, was still a starting point for McClintock. With the advent of the Polaroid SX-70 1978, he chose to invest time he would normally spend in a darkroom embellishing his instant photos with an ink pen and pencil. During the first ten minutes after the photo emerged from the SX-70, the image would remain “soft” enough that McClintock could modify it to suit his fancy. After 10 minutes, he would turn to paints and markers. Little more than an adolescent phase, the practice Original Polaroid shot and contributed to his artistic development nonetheless. manipulated by McClintock But it’s the subjects that offer perhaps the strongest clues as to why his work touches so many people. McClintock’s art most often features landmarks in major cities (i.e. Baltimore, NYC, DC— including the restaurants, clubs, and bars that give place to a city’s nightlife—and people’s pet dogs and cats. McClintock, his wife Sue and 4 cats reside in Baltimore, Maryland. McClintock is in the process of publishing his first book.

  10. 10. robertmcclintock Artist What People Are Saying About Robert McClintock quot;Want to export the spirit of Baltimore in an object d'art? If your recipients dig kitsch, they're guaranteed to appreciate such ready- made symbols as the Bromo-Seltzer Tower, the Shot Tower, a clipper ship, or a tugboat, ubiquitous on T- shirts, posters, and postcards. Digital photographer Robert McClintock, who we see at just about every festival and fair around here, shoots all that stuff, of course, but he widens his scope with scenes both more ordinary and more evocative: kids on a sodium-vapor-lamp-illuminated Hampden intersection, bocce rollers in Little Italy. He then romanticizes them with a painterly, expressive treatment so even clubs on the Block become saturated with color, dignified and timeless. For less than $100, you can show your loved ones how Baltimore kitsch can cross the border into fine art.quot; – Baltimore City Paper quot;Robert McClintock has the unique and uncanny talent of capturing images of Baltimore that illustrate its storied past, its charm and its endearing character. His works are truly reflective of Baltimore's history, its culture and its promise.quot; – Donald C. Fry, President & CEO, Greater Baltimore Committee “Through Robert’s eyes, familiar city scenes can take on an ironic beauty. A Formstone brick, or the old Shot Tower, take on an expressive, idealized quality that reflects the fondest parts of city’s our past and our hopes for its future.” – Andrew Buerger, CEO & Publisher Alter Communications Publisher of Baltimore Jewish Times Studio & Gallery ♦ 1809 Thames Street♦ Baltimore, MD 21231 Page 8 P: 410.814.2800 ♦ F: 410.461.2609 ♦
