In his latest exhibition Rob Rek takes his audience to a garden of Eden. Familiar South East Queensland coastal landscapes become gateways to the tiniest of birds and insects who have swelled into giants - while a collection of diminutive paintings are tiny windows in the delicate beauty of our countries diverse winged creatures.
An undercurrent flows from the kingdom of heaven and passes through the collection - The Artist’s intricately detailed works are embellished with Ornate frames akin to the masterpieces of the Vatican Museum and iconic symbols are reclaimed from the renaissance.
“ I often find myself questioning where all these vistas and splendid creatures came from- these scenes have been borrowed by the greatest painters the world has ever known to depict what heaven might indeed look like and yet we plunder it all and more from nature"- says REK
