Robyn’s latest creation is a window with a painted image on the inside and a 3d bird sculpture on the outside. This kind a work is called Trompe l’Oeil, which is french for trick the eye. It has recently been placed on the side of the Blackbutt Art Gallery to attract people into coming inside and having a look.
“The window was made with the help of my father to match the existing windows. I painted the little child with his hands pressed up against the glass. He has an excited expression when looking at the bird which sits on a shelf outside the window. The bird has a piece of jewellery ( fake of course) in his beak at the moment but we will change it periodically to different things.It was challenging, but I like the combination of painting and sculpture in the one piece.”
