All Work (Chronological)

A chronological portfolio of all work created by Madison, Wisconsin painter R.O. Coberly.

Coberly's abstract contemporary paintings feature brushy, complex, colorful, intense, rich images created by hand in oil on canvas and in mixed media.

Coberly's paintings incorporate motifs reminiscint of viewing terrain from the high vantage-point out an airplane window mid-flyover. They feature imagery reminiscent of cartography, intricate city street maps, exposed circuitry and finicky schematics.

His images embrace an incredible energy, motion and the suggestion of meticulous recordings that capture the pathways of light, power, transportation and travel.
