Adam Robinson’s Style
Adam reinvigorates the imagery he works with, giving it new context and narrative. He particularly enjoys working with vintage paper products from the 30s-70s and bringing it into a contemporary setting. Adam’s conceptual approach hovers between abstract and graphic, and whilst some works appear as patterned and ordered arrangements, some tell new stories with old materials. Colour plays an important role in Adam’s practice as it has the unique ability of instilling a strong sense of emotion into each of his works, whilst enhancing the patterned aesthetic.
