The Whittox Gallery at RISE is excited to announce their next exhibition Light Water Rebellions - a solo show by abstract artist ROBIN SEWELL.
Robin creates worlds within his abstract works – universes even – that are rich with implied meanings and emotions. Making each painting is an act of exploration into the unknown, achieved with an array of singular machines and devices rather than traditional brushes. He invites the viewer to join him on his journeys of experimental discovery.
