Rebecca Robinson, a former London based Fine Artist , now lives and works from her tranquil garden studio on the beautiful Isle of Wight.
She uses ordinary, discarded , overlooked and found objects to make extraordinary work creating art that is a simple expression of a complex idea and underpinned by extensive research and detailed preliminary drawings.
Her sought after paintings and textile pieces often incorporate found objects and materials particular to the site of reference. Dust, builders debris, antique textiles and plant matter for example are used to create unique and evocative works.
Her installation and sculptural pieces find her employing hands on methods, small repetitive gestures and low-tech materials.
Her work is often extravagantly inefficient in time and labour and thus questions notions of perceived value, division of labour and mass consumption.
She painstakingly creates pieces where often only a small percentage of the finished work can be viewed by the audience, asking us to reflect on the unseen endeavors of all artists and crafts people.
Rebecca is an experienced Tutor, Arts Education Consultant and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
She runs regular classes and workshops for individuals and small groups from her Island studio and various inspirational locations throughout the UK
