Promontory1st March 2017 - 5th April 2017
Stuart Robinson showcases new work specifically developed for The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art. Utilising ideas and themes developed through his recent practice, such as signage, props, scale and model-making, Stuart presents a new sculptural installation featuring frameworks, structures and illuminated elements that explore our experience of the everyday and how the world is presented to us. The work explores familiar shapes, colour and materials from our daily encounters with media, signs and surroundings, as well as inspirations from Plymouth itself.Stuart Robinson is a mixed media sculptural- installation artist currently living and working in Penryn, Cornwall. Having studied Fine Art at the University of East London, Stuart relocated to Cornwall and lectures on the Foundation Diploma Art & Design at Truro College. His practice explores imagery and inspiration from a wide range of sources across art, media, landscape and popular culture digested and condensed into object and form. He has shown across the UK and internationally and has just published the book ‘Ham Fisted Half Cocked’, exploring his work.
