This will be the first major retrospective exhibition of work by William Robinson, one of Australia's senior contemporary landscape artists. Like Sidney Nolan, John Olsen and Fred Williams, among others, Robinson's mature paintings and works on paper reveal a passionate engagement with the local environments in which he has lived and worked. The exhibition will trace the important shifts in Robinson's art which have occurred in the last three decades, including: Bonnard-inspired interiors, portraits, seascapes and multi-viewpoint depictions of the lush rainforest environment of southern Queensland. Above all the exhibition will reveal how William Robinson has contributed a highly distinctive response to a sense of place.
