Canary Yellow is an example of Robert Clinch’s contemporary urban realism painted in Gouache, watercolour and drybrush

Robert Clinch's opalescent egg-tempera paintings and beautifully hand drawn lithographs are expressions of a seemingly realistic, but fictional world. These timeless images draw their sense of place and tactility from plein-air observation, yet have a singular, poetic intensity that moves us far beyond the simple rendering of real locations.

Clinch's lyrical realism speaks of loneliness, joy, humour and melancholy; of yearning, innocence, playfulness and whimsy; and observes the issues that arise from our impatience, injustice, negligence and relentless consumption of the planet.

Many of his artworks have been acquired by major public, corporate and private collections; on a number of occasions being commissioned specifically for them.

Artworks can be viewed by visiting the stockroom of his representative gallery; Lauraine Diggins Fine Art in Melbourne who also welcome enquires by phone and online. Please click here for gallery details.
