Robert Malherbe’s confident articulation of landscape and figurative subject matter has earned him the distinction of being one of Australia’s most loved contemporary painters. His heavy impasto application of oils is as seductive as it is revealing of the pace in which he paints. Working only from life, Malherbe is a master of light, confidently capturing fleeting moments in a vibrant impressionistic style, driven by instinct and gesture. ‘The Human Landscape’ is Malherbe’s most recent collection of new paintings.
