Robert Seebach's paintings explore both the physical and metaphysical, featuring figures and objects in surreal landscapes depicted in ways that draw the viewer to explore relationships and the human experience. Rich colors and stark contrast between landscape, figures, and objects encourage the viewer to explore the subconscious mind as well as the physical relationships between the items in the works of art. A Rochester native, Seebach returned to the area after exploring educational and artistic opportunities elsewhere, and he currently has an exhibit of work on view at Whitman Works Company's main gallery.
