In his latest exhibition, Sault ( old french word for running and falling water), Robert Wiseman presents Eastern Canadian landscapes with his distinguishable whimsy, modeled brushwork, and sensitive colour relationships.  The St. Lawrence River's rolling Lachine Rapids, a reservoir at the bay of Fundy spilling into the Atlantic Ocean, and even an intimate garden stream are featured in the collection.  Fascinated by moving water and the powerful sound it generates flowing across rock formations, Robert Wiseman's paintings imply the duality of 'loud' atmospheres, simultaneously serene.

 

Robert Wiseman received a BFA with distnction from Concordia University in 1997.  Living and working in Lachine (Montreal), Quebec, his painting practice over the last 15 years has emphasized depictions of the figure, still life, and landscape, inferred from direct observation using ink, watercolour, and oil paint.  Exhibiting regularly in Quebec, Ontario and Albera, his work is featured in several private and public collections throughout North America.

Robert Wiseman: Machinations / Marcia Harris: Progeny Series

November 26 - December 14, 2011

In this two-person exhibition, Robert Wiseman and Marcia Harris bring landscape painting into the realm of narrative. With mythological underpinnings, tied prominently to the hubris of flight, Wiseman’s oil paintings are both vibrant and whimsical. Harris’ ethereal landscapes, newly inhabited by the figure, are a reinterpretation of the idealized pastoral-scene-with-figure tradition, fluidly rendered and encased in a sleek layer of resin.
