Robert Savignac "An Exhibition of New Paintings"
1203 Broad Street, Victoria, B.C.
September 14, 2019 until September 26, 2019
Robert Savignac was born in Montreal, Quebec, in 1946 and grew up to study at Vieux-Montreal CEGEP and Université du Quebec. Known for lovingly painting the chaotic splendour and lush abundance of urban gardens, Robert’s latest collection abounds with colour. Playing with real landscapes and his imagination, he creates beautiful and inviting oases on canvas. Flowers spill from balconies, vines creep up the side of stonewalls, all while dappled sunlight casts its light and shadow. Masterfully playing with perspective, composition and a jewel-like palette, he revels in creating contemporary portraits of floral spaces. An artist, who delights in sharing his love of painting, takes the viewer with him on a journey to the tranquil respite of the garden. Robert’s works are featured in numerous private collections in Canada and Europe and is one of Canada's most sought after artists.
