Information

William Robinson (b.1936, Brisbane) is widely regarded as one of Australia’s most distinguished contemporary artists, best known for his landscape and portrait painting. Robinson is critically acclaimed for his arresting landscape compositions of South East Queensland rainforests and seascapes of northern New South Wales. Robinson’s landscapes, with their multiple, ever-shifting perspectives generate a hallucinatory yet real experience of the Australian bush complete with trepidation and awe. His portraits and farmyard paintings are widely adored with their quintessential hint of Robinson humour and sense of play highlighting his spirit and sensitivity for both his subjects, and the act of painting itself.
