Micheline Robinson


Artist Biography

“My work is increasingly being informed by psychological themes as I navigate through understanding and managing long-distance relationships as an expatriate and exploring what it means to be connected. I question our feelings, I seek to provoke thought and emotion and to create a believable sculptural space. The glass-like effect has come as a result of my own experimentation with inks as I have found that their translucency conveys light effectively. The sculptural element is a nod to contemporary photography with its ability to capture movement at once in one frame. My process often involves creating chaotic energetic markings with inks then subtracting until I find an aesthetic solution and resolve.”
Micheline exhibits internationally (over 70 group and solo shows in her career) and is an active humanitarian artist, participating in many projects such as the Ubuntu Charity Show in Seoul that raised $150 000 for malnourished children of North Korea and Sweden’s exhibition “In recognition of Malala Yousafzai” which raised funds for education. Realising there were few opportunities for artists to display their works on the UK’s Wirral peninsula (left bank of the Mersey), she founded and organised the Wirral Open Studio Tour which received Arts Council funding in 2010 and is still going strong today. Micheline currently resides in NZ and has collectors in several countries as well as having work in private and corporate collections globally.
