The Ashburton Art Gallery is excited to open new exhibitions which pay tribute to the medium of painting and its enduring power as an artistic discipline. 'Strange Attractor' is an exhibition of recent paintings and works on paper by Dunedin-based artist James Robinson. The artist’s visual diary will also accompany this exhibition which contains additional drawings which inform the completed works.

Robinson is regarded as a significant artist of his generation known for his honest and immediate approach. Critic Warwick Brown describes his attitude to making art “like a tide Robinson is a force of nature, and, like nature, his art is capable of sublimity and terror, of tranquillity and turbulence. Just as the retreating tide arranges jetsam on the sand at random, but with a sense of the abstract power that placed it there, so Robinson’s art confronts us with a record of swirling activity.”

Robinson was the Paramount Winner of the Wallace Art Awards in 2007 and has held numerous prestigious residencies at the Sarjeant (Wanganui), the McCahon Trust (Auckland) as well as the William Hodges in Southland and others in New York and Berlin. In August 2014 he was awarded a year-long residency near Melbourne, Australia.
