Experience of the Everyday
May 3rd – 25th, 2024

Robin Kingston Catalogue

Each of the artworks in this exhibition has its genesis in objects and situations from my everyday life whether it is a sequinned evening purse made by my grandmother, rugs in the house, the birch trees through a bedroom window decorated with coloured glass baubles – viewed from bed, or the screens on the house that originated with a drawing made by me. Some of the artworks are in response to a very large wall work over two floors I made in the School of Art at RMIT. Experiencing this artwork is like a walk into painting.

For me, art and life are inextricably bound together – inseparable, and it is the lived experience of the light, the colour, the touch and the feeling.
