This is a continuation of the typecasts of my trip to Melbourne.
Arthur Streeton: A golden summer.
Jeffrey Smart: The Listeners.
A quick photo I took of one of Robert’s sculptures. Note the corresponding painting in the background.
Robert Clinch: Dovetailed
Robert Clinch: Fanfare for the common man.
Robert Clinch: Spartacus
I went to high school in Essendon, and in Melbourne the your team is often your tribe. The Essendon colours are etched permanently in my mind – despite being a Fitzroy supporter.
Robert Clinch: Sign of the times.
The very familiar (to Melbournians) Nylex sign, and ‘Skipping girl Vinegar’ signs have been ‘Coked’.
The Nylex sign
Skipping girl vinegar
The subject of why these ageing signs are so loved by Melbournians is an entire blog post on its own.
Robert Clinch: Lot’s Wife.
Robert Clinch: Soliloquy.
Robert Clinch: Bull Bar.
Robert Clinch: From bauhaus to our house.
Robert Clinch: Loch Ness.
I really love Robert’s sense of humour.
Just for reference, I don’t have permission to post the images of those artworks that are displayed above. They are linked directly to Robert’s website, which can be found HERE. Please, pop over and by his book (or even a painting?) so that he feels the exposure has been worth it to him and as such won’t ask me to stop displaying his works.
Meanwhile, if you’re ever in near somewhere his paintings are on display, GO SEE THEM. The pictures on here just don’t do them justice at all.
