Rob McLeish Yellow Kisses, Dirty WishesOpening: Tuesday 12 October, 6-8pm Dates: 12-30 October 2004
Rob McLeish was born in Melbourne in 1976 and has a background in graphic design. McLeish’s drawings,
sculptures and installations, in the artist’s own words, ‘embrace an ecstatic ambiguity’. In recent years, McLeish has drawn extensively on the subject of the gymnast in his sculpture and collage practice, exploring notions of formal correctness and physical perfection in the face of inexorable bodily decline. Discordant elements in his sculptures represent his interpretation of the pursuit of the perfect form at the cost of physical deterioration.
Rob McLeish is represented by Neon Parc, Melbourne.
