Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Robert Therrien is an artist inspired by memory. Evoking the term's simplest most familiar forms, he aims for the viewer to rethink the meaning behind ordinary objects like a table leg or a wooden dining set. Though based mainly on his childhood memories, Therrien leaves the objects' interpretation open-ended. Given the ambiguous subject, Robert Therrien incorporates from a variety of art-movements.
 
« I try to stay with themes or objects or sources

Robert Therrien

As a result, Robert Therrien's vision leads him to use different types of mediums.
