Lisa V Robinson's work is underpinned by an interest in the formal elements of painting, mainly; colour, line, shape and texture. She has developed a vibrant painting style which fuses abstract and figurative elements. She uses the outside world as a catalyst for composition and mark making. This can include mundane, overlooked spaces, such as derelict buildings to colourful mid century interiors, film and landscapes. These referential images are deconstructed and placed on the surface as abstracted components. The resulting paintings are playful in nature, combining geometric blocks of opaque colour with painterly brushstrokes. The works are often left untitled to allow the viewer to freely translate the relationship of the forms and gestures.
Lisa studied at Manchester School of Art gaining First Class Honours in BA Fine Art Painting. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has been shortlisted for the New Lights Art Prize and ING Discerning Eye Prize.
Lisa currently works in Studio A7, Westgate Studios, Wakefield. The studios are open to the public as part of the Wakefield Artwalk. "For ten years, venues across Wakefield have been opening their doors for a bi-monthly evening of visual arts, crafts, workshops, live music and performances. Everyone is welcome and most events are free, so there's never been a better time to discover a city that's bursting with culture."
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Wakefield Artwalk has been cancelled for the forseeable future. For further information please visit: artwalk.org.uk.
