Have you seen my childhood
Tom Robinson – New Paintings
October 19th – November 20th, Wed – Sun 11-4pm
Artsmill present the first one man show of Tom Robinson who studied at the Byam
Shaw and the Prince’s Drawing School and is a Gilchrist Fischer Prize 2010 nominee.
Essentially a celebratory artist the main theme of his work is the character of light in
landscape and memory. Deeply sensitive and poetic, Robinson's paintings, whether from
life or memory, seek to pin down the artist's place within the world. Now based in Norfolk,
it was during his time in Jersey that he began to take on significantly wider angles of vision
leading to more abstract and rhythmic solutions. The pure physicality of the coloured paint
mark as a sense loaded hotwire to the viewer’s consciousness has become more and more
"Each painter has to invent their own rules. These rules determine how to bring the subject
into being. As I paint my perception of the painting and its subject builds, leading to
resolution and a sense of newness. This newness extends the range of possibilities open to
me in subsequent work."
