A New Addition to the Blackbutt Art Gallery

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.”
