La Galerie Cazeault est fière de présenter les plus grandes œuvres du photographe canadien renommé Robert Walker. Au courant des dernières décennies, l’artiste acquit une notoriété pour son regard singulier porté sur le paysage urbain. Depuis 1970, il réalise le portrait des villes célèbres, tels que New-York, Warsaw, Venise et Montréal selon une perspective différente des images diffusées pendant le 20e siècle. Les photographies de Walker se caractérisent par des espaces chargés dans lesquelles se superposent les plans et par l’usage d’une gamme chromatique haute en couleur saturée, et ce, sans aucune retouche numérique. Certaines de ses oeuvres ne sont pas sans rappeler les peintures de James Rosenquist et de Tom Wesselmann, protagonistes du mouvement Pop Art.

Si l’artiste parvient à représenter l’actualité culturelle selon une composition complexe et un contraste de lumière intensifiant les couleurs, c’est bien grâce à sa formation en peinture à l’Université Sir George Williams, aujourd’hui l’Université Concordia, ainsi qu’à ses années d’expérience en photographie documentaire. Selon Walker, l’appareil photographique seconde la sensibilité de l’être humain. Il permet d’organiser, de rationaliser et surtout de donner un sens au chaos de la ville et de la nature.

Dans l’introduction de son première publication, New York Inside Out, William S. Burroughs souligne :“…Walker catches the meaning of meaninglessness, the patterns of chaos, the underlying unities of disparate elements…”. La reconnaissance artistique de Robert Walker joint les publics et les institutions nationales comme internationales. Ses oeuvres sont notamment collectionnées par le Victoria & Albert Museum, London; le Kunsthaus Museum, Zurich; la National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; la Bibliothèque national, Paris; the Museum Sztuki, Lodz, Poland et le Musée des beaux-arts de Montreal.

De 1980 à 2017, il reçoit 4 fois le prix notoire du Canada Council Arts Grants.

Galerie Cazeault is proud to present important works of the renowned Canadian photographer Robert Walker. During the last decades, the artist gained notoriety for his singular look on the urban landscape. Since 1970, he has been portraying famous cities, such as New York, Warsaw, Venice and Montreal, from a perspective that differs from typical urban images produced during the 20th century.

His work represents the blurring between the urban landscape and the ‘mediascape’. Over the years illusionary compositions and vibrant colours have become his trademark. Originally trained as a painter, the influence of Pop Art can be detected in his pictures such as the giant Times Square billboards of James Rosenquist or the luscious paintings of cherry lips by Tom Wesselmann.

In the introduction to his first book New York Inside Out, William S. Burroughs commented :“…Walker catches the meaning of meaninglessness, the patterns of chaos, the underlying unities of disparate elements…”. Robert Walker’s work is in many public and private collections including, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Kunsthaus Museum, Zurich; the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Bibliothèque national, Paris; the Museum Sztuki, Lodz, Poland, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

From 1980 to 2017, he received four times the notorious Canada Council Grants Award. Walker's previous solo exhibition in Montreal dates back 10 years.
