William Robinson: A New Perspective



Product Description

Released in October 2018 - open for pre-sales

Nick Earls and William Robinson share a dry wit that is distinctly Australian. Earls’ stories are imbued with a strong sense of place, as is the work of William Robinson, making this an ideal pairing for authentically narrating Robinson’s life and work.

From cringing over his first solo exhibition in the 1960s, to juggling family life, teaching and goat farming alongside his art practice, William Robinson's career trajectory unfolds throughout this newly commissioned book from best-selling author, Nick Earls.

"As one of our most significant living artists, William Robinson's work has been the subject of numerous insightful essays and books by art experts.

With no such expertise to offer, but an eye and an ear for a story, I had a chance to do something different.

It was a real privilege to sit down with artist himself for hours of discussion that brought his story to the surface.

I hope that, from that, I'll have joined a few dots that no one's joined before, and created something that gives an insight into how he became the artist he is," said Earls.

The book will be released alongside a limited collector's edition of 100 handmade box-framed sets containing two newly commissioned etchings by Robinson as well as an artist- and author-signed copy of the publication.
