On Thursday 24 June, Martin Browne Fine Art gallery welcomed guests to the opening of Robert Brownhall’s latest exhibition.
In these works, Brisbane-based Brownhall has captured classic Sydney landscapes, from the Harbour Bridge and Opera House to beachscapes and nightime harbourside scenes.
“Everything is bigger,” Brownhall says. “It’s a big city, there’s big scenes. I’m drawn not only to the grand scale of the city but in all its forms – I can see little scenes within a scene. What I also like about Sydney is it’s a city by the sea, you can see the horizon out to the ocean.”
"Robert is one to watch,” says gallery owner, Martin Browne, “he’s at an interesting stage of his career – people love to think of artists as overnight successes but he’s been painting and exhibiting for more than 20 years.”
“I feel that with his distinctive panorama landscapes – often of night scenes – he has found his own unique artistic voice,” Browne says. “He gives us a new way of looking at this country’s urban landscape and with this, his first Australian exhibition outside Queensland, he’s on his way to national acclaim.”
The exhibition runs until 18 July 2010.
