About The Artwork

An original, vintage British postcard and acrylic crystals arranged on canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. Each of the nine works are mounted behind glass within grey, wooden frames. Depicting images from the seaside town of Littlehampton in the 1930’s, these postcards were discovered at an antique market in Essex. Each one has been altered in an identical fashion to give the set a sense of unity. The sharp, geometric form of the sunken circles provides a contemporary layer to the pieces whilst also serving to highlight the central section of the photographs. The use of three alternating crystal colours contribute a sense of contrast to the surrounding monochromatic images. Evoking a strong sense of nostalgia, these works reference a bygone era when holidaying in a coastal town, whatever the weather, was the norm for most British citizens. The multi-coloured crystals compliment the celebratory nature of the scenes as people are seen relaxing and enjoying themselves by the seaside. These small works are the first in a series of pieces utilising a single postcard. © Adam Robinson

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.
