CHG Director's Statement: Australia artist Robert Grieve passed away on 15 December 2006 at the age of 82, after a distinguished career as a professional artist spanning 58 years.

Robert Grieve’s art was inspired by diverse influences, including Cézanne, Social Realism, the V.A.S, schooling from Matthews and Alfred Stone, Max Meldrum’s tonal painting, Stanislaus Rapotec’s dynamic compositions, the work of Antoni Tàpies and Ian Fairweather and his own interest in Asian art. At the same time, from out of a melting pot of sources Grieve shaped his own idiosyncratic artistic vision, where his rhythmic, abstract compositions communicate on what Grishin described as a spiritual level.

Robert Grieve's art is represented in numerous prominent Australian collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth, the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane; the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; the Bendigo Art Gallery, Bendigo and the Geelong Art Gallery, Geelong. Robert Grieve is also represented in New Zealand collections such as the Dunedin Art Gallery, Waikato Art Museum and the Chartwell Trust Collection.
