V Robinson’s work is underpinned by an interest in the formal elements of painting; shape, line, texture and colour. Rather than reverting to abstraction as a method of visualising
these interests, she has developed her own painting style which fuses both
abstract and representational elements. She looks to
the outside world for ideas for composition and mark making, such as:
mid-century interiors, architecture, urban landscapes and films. These images
are deconstructed and placed on the canvas/ paper as abstracted components. The
reference material is used until a certain point, and then the remainder of the
painting is finished intuitively.
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 due to be held on 27th May has been cancelled. For further information please visit: artwalk.org.uk.
