Sheila Robinson has created a dynamic and surprising image here – it is a picture within a picture. Here she shows a small selection of a room and a view which, presumably, she must have known well. The aspect is at once ordinary and extraordinary. The solid, matter-of-fact calendar marks another day with crisp clarity, whilst the otherwise bare walls are animated by broad and expressive marks. The view from the window becomes a dynamic jumble of forms which leads the eye, via pleasing shapes and patterns, to the focus: the church tower which, considering the precision of the date, strangely lacks a clock face.
Chosen by Ed Kluz, Artist, as part of Random Spectacular, the 2020 exhibition at The Fry.
