Robert Linsley: One Hundred Views Of Mount Baker

Curated by: Karen Love

A photographic project by Vancouver artist Robert Linsley, inspired by Japanese artist Hokusai’s famous project on 100 Views of Mount Fuji.

Strong economic and cultural ties exist between British Columbia and Asia, and a deep interest in landscape is one manifestation of this commonality. Consequently, according to Linsley, his reference to Japanese art in his project "in not a romantic orientalism, but a recovery of the modernity of Hokusai's vision - his mass media technique, his urban themes and his depiction of social change."

Supported by the Canada Council.
