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.
“I am not coming into the studio to make things. I am coming into the studio to be. To enter into a kind of state. My drawings and paintings are, in some sense, underpinned by my subconscious. I am bringing things in from other places, from really obscure places, and gathering them together in a way that my conscious mind couldn’t possibly have the intelligence or wherewithal to do.’ – RS
Robin Sewell was born in 1951 in Yorkshire and educated in Leeds, then Cardiff and the Slade School of Fine Art, London. He was a Senior Lecturer in BA Fine Art at Maidstone College and University of the Creative Arts in Canterbury between 1980–2012 and had studios in London and Umbria, in Italy until moving to Wiltshire in 2016 where he now lives and works.
Since being in the West of England he has been part of the curation and created the discursive forums for the Wells Art Contemporary at Wells Cathedral for the past three years. He has recently exhibited at Andelli Art and shown all over this country and abroad. His paintings are in collections internationally.
The Whittox Gallery showcases contemporary art and located in the heights of RISE, a former church built in the early 1800s that has now been lovingly transformed into a cultural, lifestyle and community venue in the centre of Frome. Within the beautifully restored building, you will also find The Whittox Gallery’s shop and the Rye Bakery café.
