Megan Robinson graduated with a BA (Hons) in Art from IADT in 2017.
My paintings stem from multiple drawings where I uses imagined spaces, found natural forms and colour to create a sense of an unusual relationship between architectural, linear and natural forms. They look and feel familiar but seem to exist in a different time and place. She uses colour to enhance a surrealist, otherworldly quality. The paintings exist in a state of flux between figuration and abstraction. Dense, grotesque, natural shapes float in a mist of paint while being contained or pierced by an unknown line or mark. Often taking on anthropomorphic or ambiguous qualities the paint transforms these organic forms, pushes them into new spaces and interactions and gives them new possibilities.
Recently I have been experimenting with moving art film. My new video work ‘Cracks’ was featured in ‘A Setting’ at Pallas Projects/Studios. I enjoy the different processes, conversations and collaborative elements with film. Going from exploring a static image to a moving image has opened up my practice and created new interests and ways of viewing my practice. ‘Cracks’ is a film about memory and place and how over time they not only becoming intertwined with one another but how one alters the other and our viewing of them.
