Strange Attractor is an exciting new body of large works by James Robinson.

"James will be in Blenheim for his exhibition opening, which will be accompanied by a catalogue essay by art critic and writer, Warwick Brown, MNZM. Excerpts from Warwick Brown’s essay: James Robinson’s art flows on like a tide, picking up debris, expunging old marks, meandering, retreating, advancing again. Like the tide Robinson is a force of nature, and, like nature, is capable of sublimity and terror, of tranquility and turbulence… Robinson’s past paintings have often contained suggestions of landscape. In this new body of works these hints of landscape and the real world seem much stronger. Although superficially abstract, these are very structured paintings." - Warwick Brown, August 2016

James Robinson was born in Christchurch, New Zealand, in 1972 and currently lives in Dunedin. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Otago School of Fine Arts in 2000. He was the Paramount Winner of the Wallace Art Awards in 2007 and has held prestigious residencies at the Sarjeant (Whanganui), the McCahon Trust (Auckland), the William Hodges (Southland), and others in New York, Berlin and Melbourne. James Robinson’s work is held in numerous public, private and corporate collections throughout New Zealand and Australia.
