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
I can trace back to my personal history. »

Particularly early on, his pieces were influenced by Minimalism, Pop Art, and Conceptualism. Elements from all three are evident in Therrien's work through its simplicity, uncompromising presentation, and focus on being "back-to-the-basic" in a new way.
 
« Sometimes people ask whether I am a romantic or a realist artist. I would hope that I fall between the two. . . »
Robert Therrien

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

What is pop-art?

What is pop-art?

Refers to an art movement that began in Britain in 1955 and late 1950s in the U.S. It challenged fine arts tradition by including popular culture imagery such as news and advertising. Pop art sometimes isolates and removes a material from its context and combines it with another unrelated material. This concept refers much to the attitudes that resulted in it and not on the art itself. Pop art employs comic books, advertising and other mass culture aspects. It is interpreted to have come as a reaction to abstract expressionism dominant ideas.
