Hope and Wild Apples
Robert Bateman has been an artist and naturalist since his early childhood where he roamed the fields and woods of his own backyard. He has always painted wildlife and nature, and in his early 30s he moved back to realism as a more suitable way to express the particularity of our planet. It is this style that has made him one of the foremost Canadian artists depicting the world of nature and it is his passion for the well-being of human and natural heritage that has made him an environmental champion and hero for the nature world.
In this afternoon conversation with Bateman, he makes a strong argument for us to make real efforts to reconnect by slowing down, paying attention, getting acquainted and falling in love with nature and in so doing call ourselves awake to becoming the protectors of it for the sake of all future of life.
