Chris C. Brobeck
I was born in 1951, sold my first paintings in 1969, moved to Canada in 1972, and settled in Nova Scotia in 1993. It has been a somewhat peripatetic life which has given me an abundance of tools with which to explore life how and where I wish.
My artwork arises from direct engagement with the people, places, things, and ideas that make up my immediate world. I look to synthesize that experience with knowledge into understanding, bring that understanding into form through imagination, and express the form by exploring the resonance between internal conception and external representation. In short form, art is a means to express my understanding of the world, and the expression is a means to deepen that understanding. ,
