In Paris, I found myself and inspired to paint from my deep- seeded emotions… some of my Paris paintings may be inspired by the great Impressionists, another might morph the spirit of Soutine and I go with it. I do draw from my early training as a painter but when in Paris, my emotions are all over the place… I meander from an impressionist painting, some post-impressionists of the 50’s, and others like an expressionist painting. My Paris art suites come from the depths of my soul.  –Robert Gutierrez
