About the artist: Visual artist Robert Habel has been painting landscapes for over thirty years but not in the traditional sense. His practice doesn’t acquiesce to the traditions, rules and nostalgic affirmations of the past. Instead, his landscapes deal with issues of ecological and cultural sustainability. To Robert, the depiction of land undergoing change or suffering abuse is as relevant in art today as idealistic landscape painting was in the past.
