  • Description

    A BRITISH ARTIST WHO HAS HAD NO FORMAL ART TRAINING IS HAVING A ONE-MAN EXHIBITION FOR THE NEXT MONTH AT THE GROSVENOR GALLERY IN LONDON.

    HE'S BRIAN ROBINS, PROMINENT IN THE BRITISH ART FIELD FOR HIS 'KINETIC' SCULPTURES - STRUCTURES THAT HAVE MUCH OF THEIR MERIT IN THE OPTICAL PHENOMENON CREATED BY THEIR MOVEMENT.

    ROBIN'S WORKS FALL INTO THREE ARTISTIC CATEGORIES - MOTORISED STRUCTURES; STATIC FORMS AND PENDULUMS. MOTORISED STRUCTURES USE ELECTRIC MOTORS TO CREATE MOVING BLACK AND WHITE PATTERNS. STATIC STRUCTURES ARE RIBBED SURFACES WHICH TO THE MOVING EYE GIVE THE ILLUSION OF MOVEMENT. PENDULUMS ARE FINELY BALANCED STRUCTURES THAT ARE SET IN MOTION MANUALLY AND CAN GO ON SWINGING FOR UP TO AN HOUR.

    BRIAN ROBINS IS AGED 38. HIS WORK IS INCLUDED IN MANY PRIVATE ART COLLECTIONS IN BRITAIN, THE UNITED STATES AND SOUTH AFRICA. HE WAS DEVOTED ALMOST THE LAST EIGHT YEARS WORKING AS AN ARTIST.
