A collection of original, vintage booklet covers and acrylic crystals arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame.

The images are sourced from booklet covers produced in the 1960’s by the Brooke Bond Tea Company. Small cards featuring portraits of a variety of birds would be collected one by one from boxes of tea and then glued inside the booklet until the set was complete.

The individual history of each item is evident in the marks, creases and worn edges of the paper while the introduction of acrylic crystals aims to give the repeated images a contemporary feel. 

The graduated arrangement is intended to emphasize the direction of the falcons as they apparently swoop downwards.

Adam Robinson is an artist who was born and raised in Sydney. He then lived in London for 22 years and now resides in New York City. Robinson’s work reflects his passion for colour, found materials and the processes of collecting and arranging. He draws inspiration from a wide variety of sources with architecture and the built environment being particularly influential. The found and sometimes forgotten materials he uses, with their strong sense of nostalgia and history, are a further source of inspiration and fascination to him. He aims to transform these objects such that they exist in a more contemporary and ordered context and with a clean, vibrant and geometric aesthetic. He also enjoys the emotional response that colour and repetition can bring and the notion that once the materials are altered, rearranged and framed they are perceived in an altogether different way. Since graduating in Australia with a degree in Theatre Design he has worked primarily in television as an Art Director but now focuses on his art practice. Adam Robinson has exhibited in numerous exhibitions and art fairs both in London and New York and has been highlighted by Rebecca Wilson, chief curator at Saatchi Art, as One to Watch.
