Landscape as Muse

Season Four - Episode 42

In the Pines with Robert Wiens
Traveling through the old-growth forests of Ontario’s Temagami region, Robert Wiens begins with close-up photographs of ancient pines. A carver, sculptor, and woodworker by trade, Wiens disavows the horizon line in his landscape, focusing his attention instead on details in these trees. From the photographs he paints large watercolours in one to one perspective.
