This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Robert Seabeck is a Wyoming native whose art career began at age twelve. A photo-realist landscape painter who sometimes includes abstract elements, Robert Seabeck is a wildlife and floral painter who often expresses the diverse aspects of his subjects by creating a montage of images that combine panoramic landscape views with details of animals and nature within that landscape. One of his subjects is Yellowstone National Park.

He was born in Casper, Wyoming. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts at California State in Long Beach and a Master of Fine Arts Degree at the University of Wyoming in 1976.

He has also worked with etchings, monotypes and three-dimensional works. A large public sculpture of eighteen landing Canada Geese was commissioned by the city of Cheyenne.

Robert Seabeck works within a tradition of realism that has been a strong direction historically in American art. His subjects include landscapes, wildlife, flowers and vehicles.

Born in Casper, Wyoming, Seabeck attended four colleges majoring in art at each. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts at California State in Long Beach and his Master of Fine Arts at the University of Wyoming in Laramie in 1976. Seabeck's interest in light, color and sculpturesque form led him to begin his series on cars and trucks in the mid-1970's. The smooth rounded contours of the vehicles are not unlike those of the human figure. The vehicles' shiny surfaces, however, distort reflections, shadow and color, and it is these shapes and diverse hues that Seabeck seeks to capture on canvas.

Seabeck pursues visual challenges in a highly focused style, which appears to depict things as they are, in the manner of modern realists. He disclaims himself as a photo-realist, preferring to describe himself as a photo-expressionist. Rather than painting in every detail, the artist subjectively includes and excludes specific elements, often reducing backgrounds to a blur of painterly strokes.

From 1978 to 1992, Seabeck served as an artist-in-residence for the Wyoming Arts Council, the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, and the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole. His art is displayed in a number of corporate and private collections and museums including the El Paso Museum of Art, the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming State Museum at Cheyenne and the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, Wyoming.

Biography from Trailside Galleries:
Realist painter Robert Seabeck paints any number of subjects including landscapes, people, patriotic themes, cars and even food still lifes. As a Wyoming native, however, his favorite subject revolves around animals, particularly big game animals such as moose and elk. He is often outdoors in the field with his long-lens camera in hand, photographing the local wildlife. He later uses these photos back in the studio as reference for his paintings.

Robert thinks of each new painting as a challenge, whereby he can express his subjects with light, paint and color. A unique aspect of Seabeck’s work is his preference for simplifying the background in order to focus on just a portion of the animal, such as the face and antlers. This approach allows the viewer to use his own imagination and it gives the illusion that the animal is literally bursting off the canvas.

A 30-year resident of Wyoming, Robert Seabeck has work in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody. He has also worked as the artist in residence at both museums. He recently won First place in the Nationally renowned SEMA show in Las Vegas for automotive art.
