Robert MacPherson

The Painter's Reach



ISBN: 9781921503719 Category:

Angela Goddard


Robert MacPherson is one of Australia’s most significant and admired living artists. Widely exhibited and collected in Australia and with a significant presence in international events like the Sharjah Biennial (United Arab Emirates) and the Singapore Biennale, MacPherson’s bold paintings, installations and sculptures capture the dry Australian character and sense of humour. His art sees invention in everyday Australian life and landscapes, in the roadside signs, the almost-forgotten slang words and the classifications of flora and fauna that we often take for granted. Published in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Robert MacPherson: The Painter’s Reach’, this title includes major essays by guest curator Ingrid Periz and QAGOMA curator Angela Goddard, detailing the development of MacPherson’s practice and analysing key moments within it, as well as observations by international writers and an interview with the artist.
