I mostly make paintings, from large scale canvases, miniatures to murals, small painted sculptures to text based artworks. I explore the complicated coupling of eastern and western cultures in richly vibrant portrayals of the different autobiographical factors present in my life.

Robin Paine is an artist noted for original and accomplished figurative drawings and paintings. She has developed her own lexicon of imagery drawn from her interest in mythology, anthropology, social history, Art history and Natural history.
“My paintings would probably be best described as “figurative” or “realist”. I work from life whenever possible and I have found that this is essential when I’m painting people.
I have been affected by works of art from many periods, ranging from Roman Egyptian painted portraits to paintings of Gwen John, but I would also cite film (i.e. the early films of Jean Luc Godard) and photography (the German photographer August Sander) as sources of inspiration.”
