John Hartman

Born in: 1950



John Hartman was born in 1950 in Midland, Ontario, and studied Fine Art at McMaster University under George Wallace. In the 1980’s with the emergence of Neo-Expressionism, Hartman began to experiment with works that combined figurative, narrative and landscape traditions, presented from an aerial viewpoint.

In Hartman’s new CITIES series the carbuncular accumulation of houses and towers and cranes and docks and roads that we call cities are presented as their own natural formation. Man is busy in these paintings, and though we no longer see him, is as integral to the landscape as the now dwarfed mountains, seas and lakes are. The landscape is still front and centre but it has changed its appearance and in its extraordinary purpose, ignores Nature as Canadians used to think of it.
