Robert Pointer, B.A. (Fine Arts), B.Ed., Canadian artist and educator
Robert is a figurative artist inspired by what he observes and by personal experiences. A versatile artist, he paints in realist, impressionist, or abstract tradition depending on his intention and subject. His oil and acrylic works explore themes that include wildlife, cottage country tranquility and exuberance, ageing and a life lived, and the contrast between rural and urban life. Having painted and exhibited his work since the 1970’s, Robert retired from his teaching career in 2014 and is a full time artist. He teaches art through his business, Wildwood Art Adventures.
The subject of Robert’s current theme is rock climbing on the Niagara Escarpment which consists of over 20 paintings in various sizes. Scroll through some of this series by Robert by selecting the squares at the bottom of the painting. Click on each one to open a full screen view.
