I'm not a Robot - Fiona Colin @ Fortyfivedownstairs


Rather than mechanical and programmed, Fiona Colin’s process is a meditative and sensual enjoyment of seeing wet paint absorbed into paper, of seeing an organic growing of colour combinations, lines and shapes. It is an exacting practice, often unplanned within the structure of the grid, one which can also appeal to those who indulge in other slow and pleasurable activities such as weaving, knitting, calligraphy and embroidery. There is evidence, too, of the maker’s hand: imperfections and paint textures – no, she is not a robot. The inspiration for much of this work comes from the dynamism of the city: the architecture, the play of light, the ever-changing tones, the seemingly endless combinations of angles, shapes and lines. To the artist, this built environment is a celebration of geometry, a symphony of glass, steel, timber and cement. Colin has attempted to capture the ambiguities that arise not only from your subjective ‘reading’ of visual images but also from the juxtaposition of so many competing and sometimes confusing elements. Line, tone, shape, colour and perspective can conspire to invent the unexpected and make you question what you see....
