Robert Hedrick

Robert Hedrick was born in Windsor, Ontario in 1930. He studied commercial art at the H.B. Beal Technical School in London, Ontario and later painted at the Instituto Allende, San Miguel, Mexico with James Pinto and Rico Lebrun from 1953-54, and 1956-57.

Working in oil, acrylic, gouache and collage, Hedrick's early work was influenced by the work of Painters Eleven. In the 1990's he turned to shaped canvases in a geometric Minimalist style. Using black and earth tones, the paint is smoothly brushed or rolled on the canvas or textured with graphite.

Hedrick is known for his classically inspired but semi-abstract sculptures in plaster, wood, bronze, aluminum and white marble featuring subjects as torsos, candlesticks and bronze doors.
