Presentation of the artist

"Both the desire to indulge in abstraction and to cleanse oneself of it are presented on equal terms, as a constant battle between two extremes. The extreme dualities that exist not only in the mind but in external circumstances, such as current socio-political conflicts and religious debate also played a part in the conflict that exists within the work.” Leo Robinson.

Leo Robinson (b. 1994, Newcastle-under-Lyme) graduated from the Manchester School of Fine Arts in 2016.

His artistic practice runs parallel to his explorations in spirituality, self discovery and folklore. His work begins from meditations upon his own attachments and ideals, before questioning how they mirror the wider external human world. Robinson's visual symbols range from the deeply personal to the referential, scientific and historical. 

His current body of work presents the prophecies of a society split into frenzied technophiles and naturalist-purists, exploring ideas related to capitalism, the internet and environmentalism.
