An exhibition of recent work by artist Cameron Robbins - exploring the dynamics of natural landscape energies - solar, hydro, wind, geomagnetism - with sculptural drawing instruments and their outputs in drawing and long exposure photography.
This exhibition features a new installation Helio Ephemera, commissioned by Wangaratta Art Gallery. It is a direct drive solar-powered drawing instrument - outdoors a solar panel feeds a motor indoors (without batteries) responding to light and shade. As the day passes, it slowly inscribes graphite lines onto a finely honed and slowly rotating marble slab.
Heliocentric features large and small drawings from similar solar devices in the artists studio over the long months of lockdowns.
