Robin is a Painter, but his mediums are not limited, this retrospective looks back over a decade of works, like my previous artist, he has worked out of Gotham Studios and his art is collected both Locally, Nationally and Internationally.

The art on display at Freight Gallery ranges from books of Robin's drawings which i personally enjoyed, all the way to a Tapestry that was created from one of his works to china/ceramic made with some of his artwork.
He has a childlike quality to his images, the wonderment and colour is sophisticated and the executions appears simple.

Some of the artworks are less developed than others, but the use of silvers and more sparkle contrast with the vibrant and complementary colour pallette really pop out of the image. Some are more playful and most have a dreamlike quality that Robin imagines the narrative and has done all his career.
