After Cezanne

Went to the Mornington Gallery this morning to see the Freud work ‘After Cezanne’, and it was pretty good but I was more interested in the landscape work of Australian artist William Robinson, whose multi-perspectives were quite different and arresting. Dizzying actually, like you were lying on the forest floor craning your neck following the slim trunk of a tree up to the very tips and the stars.

I liked some of the things he was saying too, in quotes, about EVOKING landscape, not trying to capture it in its instant-ness. It’s like some of those archetype things I was working on; where some pattern of image or sound EVOKES a response which is about all landscape, and not just this one now.
