James Makin Gallery is pleased to present Something Must remain by Robert Malherbe. Running from 9 – 24 July, this exhibition ruminates upon the artist’s impulse to capture the beauty of the world around him. As an artist who paints only from life, Malherbe explains:

“I once saw a beautiful wall on a street corner in Darlinghurst. The afternoon light hit just so. The locals walking past, their shadows cast across it, added a human poignancy to the image. I finally decided to paint it and trudged from my studio with canvas and paints. And, this is no joke, the wall had been scaffolded and demolished overnight! It was gone.”

“That taught me a great lesson: if I have something to say with paint, say it now because everything disappears, everything vanishes. Something must remain.”

Opening: 9 July, 2-4 pm
