Existing precariously in the experience of not-knowing, Amy Robson’s paintings explore loss, disillusionment and collective anxiety. Through disjointed pictorial space, anthropomorphic forms and diverse painterly tropes, the work questions hegemonic systems of power and control. Though rooted in the real world, the paintings are not entirely figurative with their bold colours, energetic brush marks and abject mash-ups of historical and cultural references.

Deliberately awkward frame-based animations further investigate the territory of dreams, psychoanalysis and anxiety, generated in part by the contemporary eclectic proliferation of imagery, and the consequent overlaying of potential means of depiction.

Amy Robson is an American artist who has lived in the UK for over twenty years. Following a career in consumer marketing, she has just completed a Master’s in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts (UAL). Her work is held in private collections in Europe and the USA.
