ROBERT JUNIPER AM Hon. D.Litt. (1929-2012)

Robert Juniper Profile Image

Robert Juniper has been a significant figure in contemporary Australian painting since the 1960's and is recognised as a 'Living Treasure' in his home state of Western Australia . He has exhibited in London (Whitechapel, Tate galleries), and has twice been awarded the prestigious Wynne Prize for landscape painting. In 1984 he received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Western Australia , for his contribution to contemporary Australian art. In November 2005 a park in Perth was named after him by the Minister for Culture and Arts called Juniper Gardens , which showcases his magnificent bronze sculptures.

Robert's work has shaped the way Australian's have imagined their country. He is best known and highly respected for his poetic and visionary approach to landscape, particularly the outback and desert.. His landscapes are a psychological and pictorial interpretation of space, blending his feelings about the landscape with what is visible to the eye. Although identifiable objects appear within his landscapes, the images are often metaphorical and the landscape represented stretches far further than the eye can see.
