Artist has a quirky perspective of the world

THE works of Robert Faulkner demonstrates his eclectic interest in the world and how it works (or otherwise) and his quizzical fascination with the quirkiness of the human condition.

There is much evidence in these works of Bob's cartooning background, particularly in his use of form and colour to present the viewer with sometimes paradoxical, and often ambiguous, images across a wide spectrum of subject matter.

In most cases he leaves it open to the viewers to interpret these works as they wish and to assign meaning in accordance with their personal world view and personal prejudices.

Many of the paintings have a particular reference to the Queensland coast in their depictions of beach activity and high-rise buildings. Bob's paintings are mostly known for their bright colours and Australiana themes.

The exhibition opens Saturday, August 29, from 3pm to 6pm at the Boomerang Art 27 Margaret St, Southport. Join us for drinks with Bob.

This is a free event RSVP: 0400 141 943 or art@boomerangart.com.au. Exhibition is open daily until October 31 by prior appointment.
