Calgary artist Chris Flodberg is a virtuoso oil painter, a painter's painter. He became known for his landscapes but has since tackled a startling range of themes: World War II warships, intimate interior, post-apocalytic banquets, abstracts, guard dogs, and, most recently, ninety-six self-portraits in ninety-six different styles. These are monumental paintings that grab the viewer by the throat and demand attention.

"Imagine what it would be like to be able to throw a bunch of things into the air and, when they land, be able to see incredible design and order within that," commented Whyte Museum curator, Anne Ewen. Chris Flodberg: Paintings showcases this remarkable talent. Bringing together 160 of Flodberg's paintings from his first two decades, it is accompanied by five essays by Monique Westra and short musings by the artist himself. It offers a diverse and intimate celebration of the artist.
