Mapping Our Own Future
A weekly series of virtual exhibitions curated from our stockroom
Bold, Bright and Beautiful

Robert Brown
Online Solo Exhibition


As Melbourne heads into the third week of its second lockdown, it seems like the right moment to pause and reflect on the beauty and colour in the world. 

Take a moment to appreciate the impact of colour in the artwork of Robert Brown’s solo exhibition Bold, Bright and Beautiful. It is right where we want to be while we live with uncertainty and isolation in our lives.

Brown is an accomplished abstract painter whose work on paper and canvas is characterised by his bold and vibrant use of colour and spontaneous layering. He is a master colourist, whose work makes you unashamedly happy when you view it. Inspired by nature, he draws inspiration from found images of landscapes, reinterpreting what he sees with great freedom.
