About The Artwork

A collection of original, vintage magazine covers arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a lime-waxed, wooden frame. These classic, home improvement magazine covers are from 1957 and feature hand-drawn, idealized illustrations of domestic life at that time. They would have provided colorful and positive images to assist the population in leaving behind the austerity of post-war Britain. The bold, geometric shape of the raised rings contribute contrast to the surrounding design and the addition of complimentary fluorescent material on the reverse gives the impression of illumination upon the white canvas behind. The individual history of each cover is evident in the marks, tears and worn edges of the paper.

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.
