The artist’s garden, house and memories - William Robinson

Sydney, 19 Jul 2016 — 7 Aug 2016

“I am eighty and for a while now the subject matter of my painting has shifted from the landscape to my house and garden. My mind is never far from the farms and animals and they too are very close to where I live. I did a great deal of teaching in Colleges and now if I am asked what advice I would give to young artists, I would say make a life, create your art out of this life. I am indeed fortunate that I made this life with my wife and family and they provide the life-spring for my art.”

– William Robinson, April 2016
