His works can be found in public and private collections across North America; notably McAuslan Breweries commission and LIDD supply chain consultants.
Subjects of landscape, life and still life study form Robert Wiseman’s main interests. Painting from sketch or directly through observation with expressionistic brushwork, is a strategy he uses to isolate colour vibrancy and tonal variations. His objective
is with the act of painting, an invitation to share in the appeal of colour on surface and the physical nature of painting materials
in his compositions.
Currently lives and works in Montreal (QC). He teaches painting and drawing at the Westmount Visual Arts Centre since 2012,
as well as workshops at the Cummings Centre in Montreal and the Women’s Art Studio.
