Robert MacPherson

Born 1937, Brisbane. Lives and works Brisbane.


Over the course of his forty-year career, Robert Macpherson has explored the philosophical propositions of what constitutes a work of art, often incorporating familiar imagery and everyday materials and visual elements from daily life, honouring the beauty of the mundane. Macpherson’s fascination with systems of objects and language are manifested through broad fields of knowledge including art history and social history, biology and mythology.
 

MacPherson has exhibited widely in Australia since the 1970s including a major solo exhibition at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) in 2015 and earlier at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia in 2001. Other exhibitions include the Biennale of Sydney (1979, 1990, 1998, 2000 and 2010), Culturgest Contemporart Art, Lisbon (2008), Sharjah Biennale 9, Sharjah (2009) and Mayfair: Peerless 2002-2007, Yuill|Crowley, Sydney (2010).

MacPherson is represented in numerous major state, regional and public collections in Australia, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Fremantle Arts Centre, Fremantle; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Phillip Morris Collection.
