Dreamtime Robert Campion
New Zealand SURRealist artist exhibition
September 1 - 18 2018
Opening Saturday September 1 at 3pm

surrealism
s??r??l?z(?)m/
noun
1. a 20th-century avant-garde movement in art and literature which sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind, for example by the irrational juxtaposition of images.


Robert produces works exclusively in oils on canvas and has been a professional teacher and artist for over 20 years. Robert is a realist painter and has extensive experience in figurative and portrait studys. He has had several exhibitions which incorporate his love of surreal and powerful imagery.
Rob has works in many private collections nationwide. A major commission now hangs in the Auckland Town Hall. Robert is available to do private commissions also as portraiture is his speciality. He is a fan of the Flemish painter Vermeer and paints in greys first to achieve tonal balance before applying colour. Robert's intricately detailed landscapes reflect his love of the New Zealand bush and areas of a personal connection.
His works are held in private and public collections in New Zealand and overseas.
New work for September Solo Exhibition will continue to be uploaded closer to the opening

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson "The Enterprise was the first ever spaceship represented in storytelling that was not designed to go from one place to another; it was only
designed to explore. It was revolutionary in terms of what we would think space would, and should, be about. It is the most astonishing machine that has ever graced the screen"

The Ziggy part came from a tailor's shop called Ziggy's that he passed on a train, and he liked it because it had "that Iggy [Pop] connotation but it was a tailor's shop, and I thought,
Well, this whole thing is gonna be about clothes, so it was my own little joke calling him Ziggy. So Ziggy Stardust was a real compilation of things." David Robert Jones

'On the day I was born
The nurses all gathered 'round
And they gazed in wide wonder
At the joy they had found
The head nurse spoke up
And she said leave this one alone
She could tell right away
That I was bad to the bone'
George Lawrence Thorogood
