Robert Linsley’s watercolours, such as “Untitled”, contain a beautiful and delicate quality of transparency. Composed of overlapping transparent stains of colour, mosaic-like fields form according to the logic of liquid finding its way onto paper. Shapes touch, overlap and blend into each other, forming a harmonious and spontaneous colour palette on a sheet of paper.

Robert Linsley, was known for his colourful abstract paintings, in addition to writing and teaching. Originally born in Winnipeg, Linsley moved to Vancouver, where he later studied at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University.

"Robert was an exceptional artist, writer, critic and theorist," said Bogusky, former director general of the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, "...He also inspired great enthusiasm from his students." Linsley had solo exhibitions of his work in Germany, Spain and across Canada and his work was part of group exhibitions in New York City and Berlin.
