We first learned of artist Robert Deyber when we visited the Housatonic Trading Company in Bantam. Store owner Robert Graham presented us with neighboring artist Robert Deyber’s huge coffee table book, “Figures of Speech,” and we couldn’t get enough of it. We spent hours leafing through the pages, playing guess-the-phrase. Robert’s paintings are fun and entertaining, and as told on his website, his style has been described as both “kitsch and absurdist.” We just know we love!
Robert takes commonly used phrases/sayings/euphemisms that we’ve all heard at some point or another and adds his own clever twist. Once you figure out his spin on the English language, you too can become quite fluent!
