CELEBRATION – New Works by Rob Niezen
Peterborough-based artist Rob Niezen marries his disparate influences, comic book art and classic impressionism, to produce graphic oil paintings which entertain and delight.
Incorporating his observations of everyday life, Niezen weaves a visual tale through his imaginatively narrative canvases. Life is rich with colour and experience; time is measured in moments shared with family and friends.
Using light and colour, shadows and reflections, Niezen depicts table tops filled with glassware that sparkle and shine, signifying the joy of living life to its fullest.
A true master of painting sunlight–reflected and refracted, direct and indirect— Niezen’s bold use of colour, exaggerated angles, and unique perspectives lend drama to these unexpected images. Like snapshots of a perfect holiday, each canvas takes on the sense of a memento. Celebration is all about savouring life’s experience.
Born in The Hague, Netherlands, and now living near Peterborough, Ontario, Rob Niezen is a painter and printmaker who has participated in over 30 exhibitions. His works can be found in collections, internationally.
CELEBRATION – New Works by Rob Niezen will be on display from July 11 – August 19.
