Robert Clinch, the renowned Australian realist painter and collaborator with classic car collector Jeff Brown on the Goggomobil Objet D’Art project (currently on display at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery) is speaking at the Gallery on Saturday 28 April at 2pm.
Robert has transformed an iconic 1960’s Australian sports car the Goggomobil Dart, into an Objet D’art by painstakingly hand painting onto the Goggomobil a delightful cascade of 62 paperdarts; finished to show-car perfection. The dart motif has persisted in Clinch’s paintings since1985 and signifies imagination, transience, purity and fragility.
Accompanying the car, this exhibition also includes detailed sketches, a test panel and a documentary video about the project.
