Who’s robb’n who?

charles robb - trophyWhen I first saw “Trophy”  in the foyer of the National Gallery of Victoria it ‘quite blew my head off’.  It is  made from fibreglass, polyester resin, synthetic polymer, paint and steel. It was created in 2002 by sculptor Charles Robb, (and yes, I have uploaded the picture ‘the right way up’ in case you are wondering).  If you are interested in Charles Robb and his installation, you may even be interested in reading his thesis submitted to Queensland University of Technology (QUT) for his BA (Hons). entitled ‘The Self as Subject and Sculpture‘. Other quals include: BFA (Sculpture) from the Victorian College of the Arts.

So, as an opposite to a ‘heads up’ – I offer the opposite, a ‘head’s down.’ May I also suggest that perhaps, two heads are better than one!

    Two heads aren’t always better than one, but they are always more than one!
