Doug Robinson

Doug Robinson's work represents a playful merging between traditional painting and photo realism.  Robinson steers a course between mid 20th century modernism and his contemporary milieu.  Through deploying classical portrait geometry and optics his paintings generate an ironic play of underlying geometries that bring to presence scenes densely layered with conflicting narratives.

Robinson articulates the disconnected nature of our every day.  Consistent with post modern practices in the photographic arts, Robinson is guided by the discipline of deconstructing the strictures of both representationalism and formalism. 

Always aware of the larger historical lineage out of which painting has emerged, Robinson's works are systematically governed by a strength of line and classical techniques used in the ordering and manipulation of perception.  Both cerebrally and viscerally his work stands as an important contribution to the world of contemporary visual arts.
