Heliocentric: Recent works by Cameron Robbins


20 August - 30 October | Gallery 1


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.


Opening event and artist talk 20 August, 2:00-3:30
