Robert’s images are multi-layered using ink as the medium and are influenced by pointillism and Australian indigenous culture. Sculptures are primarily in wood and stone.
The 2012 Deonte ‘Estate 550’ Coonawarra Merlot wine label features “The Siege of Troy”. The ancient world, for me in childhood, was the source for countless mental wanderings into alternate realities. Maybe because of the influence of Hollywood, the mental images of these wanderings, always seemed to take on epic proportions. What could be more epic than a vast enemy fleet appearing in a spectacular sunset.
The artwork featured on the 2012 Deonte ‘Estate 553’ Coonawarra Merlot Cabernet Shiraz wine label, “Moonrise” is a manisfestation of the magic of nature which becomes apparent when light diminishes or intensifies. The rising moon is especially haunting and stirs emotions that are usually absent from our everyday work experiences.
The 2012 Deonte 'Estate 502' Coonawarra / Yarra Valley Shiraz wine label featuring “Carpathian Moon” was inspired by childhood tales and subconscious images of mysterious mountain ranges. The layers go on and the story develops. Most of my artwork seems to be motivated by subconscious musings.
