Ian Robinson
Cook Books: Colourful Painting by Ian Robinson

2018

$3,280.90

About

This colourful painting of a shelf of cook books is executed in oil on a wood panel and is framed. Ian Robinson’s work is concerned with obsessions and the back-stories of collections. Working mainly in still life he portrays his personal associations with these items in an attempt to capture the spirit, the soul, and the physiognomy of objects and our-selves as it is revealed through our passions. Excerpt from A-N Review: "For artist Ian Robinson, his photorealistic “portraits” of the objects of collections began when he was still at college, and he started to paint pictures of his own record collection. Upon moving to London, he suddenly found he had access to numerous other collections, including those of Sir John Soane, Cassiano Dal Pozzo, and Aby Warburg, and his focus switched from music to literature. He would visit the collections, make drawings and take photos, and then scale these up, sometimes by hand, sometimes by projecting the photograph on to the canvas, and paint them in minute detail over a period of months. The results are documents of documents, catalogues of catalogues, copies and replicas […] Robinson is a young man, with talent and a passion for his work, and so I can only surmise that his series will continue to grow." Ian has a First Class Ba (Hons) Fine Art : Painting from University of the Arts London – Wimbledon College of Art – 2011. He is currently employed as an Artist in the studios of Patrick Hughes.
