ROBERT GAME: VISUAL ARTIST AND FINE ART PRINTMAKER
I have watched Robert’s journey as a visual artist for nearly forty years. He continues to inspire me such that I truly enjoy sharing my thoughts about his work.
Robert is an image maker by his own definition. He develops his ideas in the medium he feels will best suit his purpose. His website http://www.robertgame.ca is a detailed record of his varied body of work going back to the 1970’s. As he says there he has always been interested geometric forms and visual symbols that suggest what might be.
His deep blues, use of perspective lines, landscape and abstract symbols have evolved over time but most recently he has been focused on the collision one might say of the natural world and manmade structures and spaces. His concern for the planet and problems of climate change is very obvious in these paintings. He sees a hope perhaps that nature will have the upper hand finally to succeed in ways we can not ever imagine.
Robert begins every day by drawing quietly with a cup of coffee. This habit allows him to cogitate before he gets on with daily tasks. I have always respected his serious regard for the creative process.
I hope that you who read this may come and see his paintings yourselves but in lieu of that here is a selection of them:
