Robin Norling – metamorphosis
Manning Regional Art Gallery
12 Macquarie Street, Taree
21 April – 5 June 2016
This exhibition reveals a lifetime of art experiments and changes in Robin Norling’s art career. Carefully painting the nude was common practice up to the 1960s and the human body is still a constant theme and challenging to him.
Robin is inspired by both figure and landscape, not to replicate, but to enjoy, re-organising the visual world in his art to achieve unity. He enjoys relating shapes, colours, subtle alignments and hidden geometry, so that the artwork ‘hangs together’ but hopefully does not bore the spectator, a process called composition.
