Lyrical Landscapes

Exhibition and Shows

23 Sep 2021 to 3 Oct 2021 Once Only Event

HOTA Gallery’s second major exhibition celebrates one of Australia’s greatest landscape painters, and living artists, William Robinson AO.

Robinson’s work has been inspired by the magic of his very own backyard – the Gold Coast hinterland – and his landscape visions enchant and inspire in unlikely ways.

Lyrical Landscapes presents a selection of Robinson’s art, including monumental multi-panelled paintings from his Creation series (including HOTA Gallery’s own work, The Rainforest, the inspiration for the new HOTA Gallery architectural design) alongside intimate studies and prints.

Brisbane born and raised, in 1984 Robinson took up residence on a 208-acre farm on the western slopes of Beechmont in the Gold Coast hinterland. There, he would walk around and observe the surrounding subtropical rainforest, creating a time of reflection that revealed both the subtle pleasures and epic grace of the natural world around him.

These experiences inspired Robinson, a painter and pianist, to create monumental canvases that twisted Australian landscape painting in a thoroughly new direction, creating unforgettable art that speaks to his deep fascination with the Queensland landscape.

For the first time, the entire Creation series produced over 16 years, will be presented together as the centrepiece of the exhibition in an experience that highlights the artist’s spiritual connection to the natural world, and his love of classical music.
