Ian Robinson working in the gallery


Ian Robinson will be demonstrating his painting techniques in the gallery and answering questions.

Ian studied at Wimbledon College of Art and started to paint pictures of his own record collection. In London, he found he had access to numerous other collections, including those of Sir John Soane, Cassiano Dal Pozzo, and Aby Warburg, and his focus switched from music to literature. He visits the collections, makes drawings and takes photos, and then scales these up, sometimes by hand, sometimes by projecting the photograph on to the canvas, and paints them in minute detail over a period of months.
