Artist's Statement:
Robin works in both pastels and oils. The pastels are evenly divided between landscapes and seascapes - usually his much-loved Venice and Tuscany or Devon and Cornwall. Often they seem, on first viewing, very accessible and illustrative. They are indeed easy on the eye, but they are more than that. Colour is used in strong planes, and recent pictures of Venice and St Ives tend more and more towards blocks of intense colour, which work as much as abstracts as they do as representational images.The oils, mainly coastal subjects, also concentrate on vivid colour and light, but here the energy comes from the way the paint is applied. Strongly textured, the seascapes swirl and flicker with movement, and the light glimmers from the surface. In both landscapes and seascapes, the sense of location is tangible. The viewer feels the light, the wind, the heat of a specific time and place
