Moving with the Rhythm of the Stars
Brian Robinson: Tithuyil (Moving with the Rhythm of the Stars) is a survey of the artist’s work that brings together works that mark the last decade of his acclaimed award-winning contemporary practice.
These works present an intoxicating world-view. A constellation of wise eyed sea creatures, muscular warriors, stars in the heavens, broad petal flowers, and hollow eyed skulls sweep through his works. Jostling amongst this realm of references to his island of Waiben, and the surrounding sea waters and islands of the Torres Strait, are the tokens and talismans of a parallel life within a global culture of super heroes, cheeky comic characters and ancient Classical mythologies.
The artworks and prints gathered together for Tithuyil capture the scope of this fluid artistic imagination.
Brian Robinson: Tithuyil (Moving with the Rhythm of the Stars) is a collaboration between the Embassy of Australia, Washington DC; the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia; and the Mossenson Art Foundation, Perth, Australia.
