Award-winning artist to exhibit work
AWARD-WINNING Weymouth artist Fiona Robinson is exhibiting a section of her work at High Cross House, Dartington until November 17 Fiona’s drawings merge diverse influences from landscape, music and literature. Music is increasingly influential and she has made work in response to the Bach Suites for unaccompanied cello and John Cage’s compositions for prepared piano.
A significant amount of the work made for High Cross House focuses on the immensely seductive curve that connects the two sides of this stark modernist building. Other pieces respond to its shapes, to the surface of the walls or the floor plans piled up on a shelf in the study.
As the work developed the straight lines and blocks bent and curved in response to the remembered flow of movement of people and the mellifluous sound of the piano floating through the interior and exterior spaces. Fiona Robinson studied Fine Art and History of Art at Oxford Brooks University 1986-89 and completed an MA in Fine Art at the University of Portsmouth, 1995-97 She was short listed for the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2012 and won the Royal West of England Academy Drawing Prize in 2011.
She was a prizewinner at the Australian International Drawing Biennale in 2007 and won the University of Bath Painting Prize the same year.
The exhibition is open 10.30am until 5pm, Wednesdays to Sundays
