Robert Florian

 

Robert Florian falls within a long line of painters who set the field and continue along the pathways first set in motion by the revolutionary impressionist and post-impressionist painting of the 19th century. A modern day flaneur of the wild, Florian works the backcountry of Western Canada’s untamed and rustic forests, in search of new meaning and new ways to impress upon the viewer the untamed natural beauty of the landscape. Florian documents through process, which he finds is revealed through closely examining ones surroundings and absorbing each thing life has to offer. His bold interpretations of Western Canada’s picturesque landscapes are expressive and visually sublime.
