Iain Dawson Gallery - Robyn Sweaney
After spending a week in bed due to illness, I have been itching to get back into the sixtoeight saddle...
I first saw Robyn's work at this very same location when it was the Tim Olsen Annex, and lucky for Robyn when Iain saved her from the much publicized Olsen stable cull.
I fell in love with her work then and I am still in love with it...it reminded me heavily of what I grew up with living in Rockhampton in the 60's and 70's. Her beautiful gouache brush work would just set my heart pounding.
Jimmy is still on vacation so I am allowed to gush!!!
A true fan of the use of gouache, her hedge work reminds me of my own early 90's work of topairy gardens which I sold many paintings...
And I do hope that Robyn sells just as many...
