Stars in your eyes

I think I’ve said this before, but one of my favourite things about working in the city is being able to get out and about at lunchtime – whether it’s for a wander in one of the large parks we’re lucky enough to have in our CBD or to one of our city art galleries. One day last week I walked across to the William Robinson Gallery at QUT, situated in Old Government House and a dedicated space for the works of this renowned Australian artist.

The current works on display range from 1971 through to this year, and while they’re mostly paintings there are a couple of etchings, gouache and a lithograph or two. This was my favourite piece – ‘William and Shirley Swimming’ – which encapsulates Robinson’s unique perspective and style. I love the way you can keep seeing new things in this painting every time you look at it… I only saw the cow on my third pass!

    I recently visited this gallery too and it was well worth a look. A great find!
