Over the years Robert has exhibited his work in many solo and group shows (Exhibitions menus opposite). Surely one of the highlights was the artist's selection (three times!) as an exhibitor in the prestigious Blake Prize Exhibition (for which he received a highly-commnded award and was twice selected for the Blake Prize National Travelling Exhibition).
Most recently, his exhibtion The Temple of Life at the Yarra Scultpure Gallery in Abbotsford (Melbourne) in October 2005 showed just how engaging his work can be when seen as an ensemble (quasi installation) - the whole is sometimes greater than the sum of its parts. On this occasion, the gallery had been setup with the walls draped in black cloth and a 'room within a room' had been created with interlocking art screens to form a central 'inner sanctum' within which the viewer was surrounded by the artist's Enlightenment series.
Robert has been associated with the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria for over 25 years, and has filled the position of its President at one time or another over this span (a position he currently fills). As a an Honorary Life Member of the CAS, Robert has devoted countless thousands of hours of his time in a remarkably sustained voluntary contribution to assist the Society to achieve its stated purpose of helping emerging and established local contemporary artists have access to low-cost exhibition opportunities and other perhaps less tangible benefits. As a Society, CAS also provides, through its gallery walks and dinner nights, opportunities for its members to get to know with one another in a relaxed environment.
