Capturing past, present, and future all in one moment. Bobbie Burgers is an artist living in Vancouver, Canada. She paints large scale portraits of flowers, but as Bobbie will tell you, these paintings are actually not about the flowers at all.
Bobbie and I talk about her inspiration, where it comes from and how changing studios gave her the luxury of seeing the progression of her body of work. We also talk about Bobbie’s reaction to having her work copied in Chinese art factories. I have to say, I love how Bobbie ultimately responded to this experience and how it has affected experimentation and her painting process.
We also talk about art residencies – Bobbie recently ran an Instagram contest where the winner gets to come hang out and work in her studio for a day – That lead to us talking about how changing things up a bit enables you to explore freely without expectations.

I am always and truly in awe of Bobbie Burger’s art. I can personally identify with her character as a person and her approach to art. I hope she continues for a very long time and that she also continues to inspire us all by the beauty she translates on canvas.
Warm regards from the North
