An exhibition of atmospheric oil paintings by Robinson & McMahon.


Robinson & McMahon is a collaboration of two artists with completely different painting methods who work on the same canvas.
“Most of our work starts in the landscape. We can visit a place and both be immersed in the same environment at the same time and still come away with different influences to put together.”
Robinson will usually sketch, noting textures, forms, shapes. McMahon prefers to take photographs, capturing light, space and a photographer’s sense of editing.
“The paintings usually show the way our distinctly different methods combine, resulting in images that have a dissonant harmony – resolved differences of opinion, a playful discussion, or even a full-blown argument. Our paintings exist because of the other, not necessarily bearing equal marks, but holds some kind of resolution.”
A finished work exists as a result of all marks made by both artists, whether they are still seen, have been obliterated or have just left a trace. They evoke a sense of place, however arbitrary they have been put together.
