Artist Robert Brownhall lifts the curtain on his alluring exhibition at Philip Bacon Galleries
Brisbane is quite the looker, if you ask us. The snaking river, lush gardens and grand urban scenery makes our city unique, but sometimes we are too busy to appreciate its beauty. Acclaimed Australian artist Robert Brownhall has stopped to smell the roses – and he wants you to as well. If you’re keen to see Brisbane through new peepers, then we suggest making tracks to Fortitude Valley art space, Philip Bacon Galleries. It’s here where you can stroll through Robert’s visual diary, which we can guarantee is one worthwhile read.
Artist Robert Brownhall’s breathtaking paintings of Brisbane are the basis of his next exhibition at Philip Bacon Galleries, and will be catching the eyes of visitors from Tuesday March 16 to Saturday April 10. These dazzling pieces traverse his observations of the going-ons in the city during the pandemic and through his skilful eye, showcases the beauty of life’s everyday minutiae that often goes unnoticed.
The show will display a selection of works, including paintings of scenes witnessed in and around Brisbane, lonely roads and landscapes. Robert’s exhibition with Philip Bacon Galleries is his first major show in two years, following the cancellation of the New York Art Fair in 2020 (due to COVID-19) and will be followed by a retrospective of his work in the New York Art Fair later this year.
