Memories of a Past Life
Brian Robinson | Watercolour | 17.5 x 13.5 inches
“I am mostly known for my watercolour paintings of old dilapidated vehicles that are no longer in use. I try to portray the poignancy of their dereliction having once been shining bright new vehicles and describe them abandoned and falling apart. I try to draw the viewer into their story by leaving some parts undescribed with loose watery paint as though detail is unavailable and yet in other sections giving glimpses of the design and glory of the original vehicle.
I like to add further dimension to my work by incorporating relevant collage material which I source from second-hand bookshops, libraries and the internet. This information is transferred to the painting using an iron-on method and is then embedded into the work.” Brian
