About

Emerging from the artistic 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 push representational boundaries with their bold colours, energetic brush marks and abject mash-ups of historic and cultural references.

Recent experiments in deliberately awkward animations are paired with the paintings to further investigate dreams, psychoanalysis and the anxiety which stems in part from the contemporary eclectic proliferation of imagery.

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.
