John Hartman creates complex landscape and cityscape paintings inspired by the natural environment of his native Canada and the formal qualities of German Expressionism. The artist paints in a thick, energetic impasto to craft compositions from an aerial perspective. Toeing the line between abstraction and representation, he often incorporates narrative and figurative elements into his vividly colored skies. Regardless of subject, Hartman’s paintings always highlight the impermanence of humanity.
