Painter Robert Malherbe will present a new series of works, In a brighter light, at Jan Murphy Gallery in June. Based in the Blue Mountains, the artist has long been inspired by the surrounds of nature. The exhibition will feature still lifes and landscapes that capture the simple perfection of a moment with his deftly produced brushstrokes.
Malherbe works directly from life to convey the subtle revelations and feelings of immediacy imparted by the painted or drawn gesture. For this exhibition, he has portrayed the South Coast where he often holidays with his family, as well as a number of still lifes from around his home and studio.
In a brighter light will run from 14 June – 9 July 2016.
