An exhibition of artworks by one of Australia’s most esteemed artists, William Robinson. The artist returns from an international tour to Washington and Paris.
William Robinson is recognised as one of Australia’s most important contemporary landscape painters. He is celebrated in particular for his original and powerful approaches to depicting the Australian environment through a multi-dimensional viewpoint. For over 5 decades, he has produced works of great originality and vision that have informed a new vernacular of the Australian landscape.
William Robinson: Genesis is the first major touring exhibition of the artist’s work in 15 years. SH Ervin Gallery organised a touring exhibition of Robinson’s work in 2003 titled William Robinson: The revelation of landscape.
The exhibition brings together a selection of more rarely seen works alongside those that have been exhibited more widely. The collection allows the viewer to clearly see the development of Robinson’s distinctive use of colour and the artist’s move towards the multidimensional perspective for which his large landscape paintings are so acclaimed.
Robinson is one of the most successful Australian artists of his generation. In 2001, the Queensland Art Gallery mounted a major survey exhibition of his work, which later toured to the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. In 2007, the artist was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia for his outstanding achievements and service to the arts. Robinson’s work has been the subject of more than 43 solo exhibitions and he is represented in some 33 public collections in Australia, New Zealand, the US, and Vatican City.
