Robert Owen: The text of light

Throughout a sustained practice of more than four decades, Robert Owen has worked across a range of media moving between painting, drawing, sculpture and installation in the articulation of his research into space, light, colour and the interconnectedness of these fundamentals.

Owen was invited to create a new body of work for the inaugural contemporary project in the purpose-built galleries of the new TarraWarra Museum of Art. Owen produced a series of paintings, including Cadence #1 a massive work comprising four panels divided into sixteen coloured strips, each one a pictorial description of the artist’s feelings of time spanning twenty four hours. Also presented were a series of new sculptures Different lights cast different shadows and the site-specific outdoor sculpture, installed on TWMA’s balcony Vessell #2 (Blue).

Continuance and juncture, presence and absence, light and shadow. Owen’s project, from early optical works of the 1960s through to painting and sculpture comprising the text of light, mediates these polarities and creates a meditative space from which we might consider our relationship with the world around us.
