Described as 'working right at the edge of painting', James Robinson created the major works in Process (skins) during a year in Southland with the William Hodges Residency which he was awarded for 2013. His works on paper are less visceral, but often as edgy, carrying a sense of the ideas and stories we wrap around self and psyche. For more images and details, click on the image or title.
