Martin Honisch I paint what I like. I don’t paint what I don’t like. All my paintings represent pleasant dreams, occasionally skirting the surreal, the bizarre, the enigmatic.Recently I have been indulging in nostalgic dreams of the past: tropical and European landscapes and parks, houses and gardens, and ships at sea under many skies.

Honisch was born in the Sudentenland in 1942. He studied painting in Hamburg, Germany on a scholarship from the World University Exchange. He came to Canada in 1952 and began teaching ceramic art and printmaking.

"World beauty can’t be defined by is a matter of personality. There is a higher beauty which is universal and eternal but art has little to do with it. Art is confined to this world and subject to the limits of this world."Artist's Homepage
