Stockholm, Sweden, October 17, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Drawing on familiar images, Alannah Robins explores our heritage of myth and memory. Among the materials she uses are cast bronze, paint and assembled works. She enjoys an instinctive, play-like, approach to the work, in which previously unrelated images conjoin to suggest deeper, unconscious layers of meaning.
“In these oil paintings, here in Chambres Separée
, I have painted the figure underwater. The underwater body is a common metaphor for the unconscious mind, and the distortion of the image could be read as a fragmentation of the mind. In working with bronze, I like to play with casts of the body and from nature. When I put these different things together they take on a new meaning.” Alannah is currently living here in Sweden with her family. She is studying opera, and vocal training. She is interested in bringing together music-drama and a contemporary visual art language.
Alannah Robins is a graduate of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. An article in The Guardian last Year listed her sculpture in Grizedale Forest Sculpture Park, Cumbria as one of the eight best sculptures of the female figure in Britain.
She has won several commissions and awards for her artwork in her home country, Ireland. This year already she has exhibited in London’s Dialogue Cultural Space, Harris Lindsay of Mayfair and here in Stockholm, in Tegen2.
