Marie Robinson’s Weather Lore is an original still life painting of a model log cabin sitting on a stack vintage rural themed books.
Marie Robinson artist comments “My area of artistic practice is painting, underpinned by close observational drawing. I have a continuing engagement with thematic collections and am inspired by the history and associations inherent in ordinary objects and materials. My subjects are commonplace items particularly from the domestic environment. I am interested in the arrangement, combination and repetition of these familiar items and the narrative, atmosphere or resonances which can be evoked by the considered choices of subject and composition. I work from a contemporary perspective rooted in the tradition of realistic still life painting. Painting directly from life I employ a representational style to evoke the qualities of the subject which first attracted my attention, without losing the physicality of oil paint on a flat surface. On leaving school I initially studied for a Chemistry degree before having my two children. Despite having drawn and painted all my life it was only while bringing the children up that I found the flexibility to develop further artistically. I initially studied with the Open College of the Arts and was eventually able to study for a Fine Art degree with De Montfort University as a ‘mature student’, graduating in 2002 with First Class Hons. During this time I also worked part-time as a picture researcher. I now paint full-time, working from my garden studio.”
