Theo Robinson, 2015
The art in Tipping Point is the result of four years of painting, both in the studio and on the street, culminating in my first solo gallery show. This show has been inspired by the aesthetics of minimalism, abstraction and suprematism, as seen through the lens of graffiti, street art and muralism.
Over the past four years I have experimented with textures, application methods, shape, design and colour to develop images that have a sense of movement and depth. In each image I aim to capture the dynamic movement associated with the creation of form, while also providing a sense of structure and space within each image. There is a larger context to each work, with themes and images running through multiple pieces, as well as the show as a whole.
Tipping point refers to the fine balance required to achieve an aesthetically pleasing image while balancing multiple influences, textures, shapes and colours. Concurrently, it also reflects the social, environmental and geopolitical state of the world at this point in time, and our interconnectedness with each of these things.
It may cool, so please dress warmly.
