Robert MacPherson: Boss Drovers

December 6, 2019 - January 16, 2020

Robert MacPherson, Australia b.1937, 1000 FROG POEMS: 1000 BOSS DROVERS (“YELLOW LEAF FALLING”) FOR H.S. (detail, no. 1916) 1996–2014. Graphite, ink and stain on paper. Courtesy: the artist and Redland Art Gallery, QLD.

 

View a selection from Boss Drovers 1996 –2014 which comprise 2400 individual drawings, all deliberately executed as if by the hand of a ten-year-old. Over a 20-year period, Robert MacPherson made these in the guise of his alter ego, Robert Pene, a grade 4 student at St Joseph’s Convent, Nambour, Queensland. The project is dated 14 February 1947, and each sheet is stained to give it an aged patina.

 

Exhibition Opens 6.30pm—8pm Friday 6 December 2019
