My son lost a dear friend and fellow artist from Ontario recently. Abstract artist and author Robert Linsley was killed recently in a collision between his bicycle and a car in Ontario and it shook my son up pretty badly. He was in the middle of composing an email to Mr. Linsley when he got the news of the man's death.
My son followed Mr. Linsley's work closely and admired his abstract art very much. He learned a great deal about the subject from this man. On February 25th he is giving a tribute lecture at Vancouver Art Gallery and hopes he can do justice to such a talented artist.
Rest in peace Mr. Linsley. My son is just one of many younger artists greatly influenced by your amazing works of abstraction. Thank you for encouraging him and being his good friend.
