About Fiona & CV
Fiona Robinson is a printmaker who makes colour etchings and collographs. Her work is based on landscape; she finds the Sussex countryside a very inspiring source of imagery, especially the South Downs, and Lewes where she now lives.
She draws images direct from nature, and then creates her own versions of them in prints later in the studio, where they are more about introspection, memory and feelings than the external world.
Since leaving St Martins where I studied Fine Art Printmaking I have been making prints based on drawings made directly in the landscape while walking. During my MA I made monoprint line drawings of walks through Lewes, the town where I live and three-dimensional works made of paper and natural materials like flowers.
I am interested in expressing the emotions that I experience in landscape. What I record in drawing is not what I know to be there intellectually or exactly what I see with my eyes. I record what my senses were engaging with physically and my imagination was caught by. I can retrace the same path repeatedly and each drawing would be different. My experience of landscape is about the sensation of movement. My drawings are about capturing the experience of the transient moment.
