Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

A collection of original, vintage postage stamps altered with a light coating of paint and arranged around a strip of wood. The work is mounted behind conservation glass within a dark brown, wooden frame.
Collected from a variety of sources, these Queen Elizabeth II stamps have been laid out in a geometric pattern forming the shape of a globe. The thin, textured layer of white paint acts to reduce the vibrancy of the stamp colours en masse and also creates a veil-like effect. This is sharply contrasted with the gloss of the painted wood strip.
Evoking a sense of nostalgia, this work references a bygone era when mail was the primary form of correspondence.

Listed size includes the frame.

Artist Profile

Born: 1974

Hometown: London

Based in: London

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.
