About The Artwork

A collection of original, vintage U.S. postcards and acrylic beads arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame. Collected from multiple sources, the postcards have been arranged to form a geometric pattern. The sunken rectangular centers leave behind raised frames which mirror the frame of the artwork itself. These hand-drawn images depict day or night versions of the iconic and temporary Chrysler Motors building, constructed for the Chicago World’s Fair of 1933. This fine example of art deco architecture housed exhibitions and was considered to be one of the highlights of the fair. The addition of white, acrylic beads placed at the top of the buildings complements the design by adding a further three-dimensional ingredient.

Adam Robinson is an emerging artist who was born and raised in Sydney and has been living and working in London for the past 18 years. 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.
