William Robinson: Nocturne

William Robinson Gallery, QUT

The passage of time is a major theme in William Robinson’s practice and many of his paintings from the mid-1980s onwards incorporate both day and night simultaneously. In several of these works, the night sky is depicted as a reflection: in rivers of stars or pools mirroring the moon. This exhibition of nocturnal works illuminates the artist’s fascination with the shimmering night sky and the sparkling landscape sprawling below, highlighting his signature multi-point perspective from the vantage point of the twilight hours.

Australian Galleries have loaned William Robinson’ Bathers at Night to William Robinson Gallery, QUT for the upcoming exhibition.


Exhibition dates:

17 September 2021 – 11 September 2022
