FROM THE MT ASSINIBOINE TRAIL NEAR BOB HIND HUT 2000-2002
Working primarily in oil and acrylic on canvas, Robert Genn (1936-2014) celebrated the wilderness he loved by painting on location and at times, composing his most cherished themes from his imagination. A master of design, Robert painted en plein-air from antique car, boat, train, plane and even horseback on Canada's West Coast, in the Rockies, at Lake of the Woods, and Algonquin, in Quebec and across the globe. Genn completed work in his studio with personalized acrylic techniques including dry-brush scumbling, signature greys, poured acrylic glazes, contrapuntal cut-ins and his beloved "colour-surprise" -- defining a lifelong, unmistakeable and peerless personal style.
