My name is Frances Robinson. At the heart of my practice is an innate need to make work. I see this as a journey of discovery in terms of the trajectory of my practice, my understanding of the world around me and as a way of expressing my inner thoughts, experiences and emotions.

"I aim to create a space where the artist and viewer can enjoy a shared proximity to the subject".

The focus of my work is to share my observations and experiences of the natural world. I study nature so I can bring to the fore it's capaciousness, complexity and beauty. 

My aim is to portray the temporality and fragility of life and I endeavour to depict these qualities in my work. Thus I celebrate the ability of painting to capture the moment and give eternal life to the subject.

I am interested in mark-making and am captivated by colour. I enjoy experimenting with colour and the relationship between colours. I use acrylic paint as it allows me to work quickly thanks to its drying properties. My visual research is photography so I always have a camera with me which enables me to capture flowers wherever I see them.

My interest in colour and mark-making is a major influence in my choice of artists within my contextual research. I am inspired by Gillian Ayres whose work is full of colour and texture. Within the area of flower painting there is a mixture between illustrative work such as Helena Goldwater and the more abstract approach of Emma Bennett. For me, my work lies between the two.
