Fiona Robinson @ Royal West of England Academy

1 March 2017 - 30 April 2017

An exhibition of work by Fiona Robinson RWA exploring the relationship between drawing and music “Drawing is the closest thing to pure thought, not in a philosophical sense, but in terms of the immediacy of the connection from eye to brain to hand. I draw, because I must, in order to understand. It is a way of knowing something.” Fiona Robinson’s work is increasingly informed by music. Using the language of drawing she creates an equivalent of, a transcription of, music. It is not a system of notation, not an alternative to a musical score to be reinterpreted, it is a response to the sound. This exhibition contains recent drawings of specific Claude Debussy pieces.
