Robin Heaton is an American painter who has been resident in the UK for 32 years. She graduated with First Class Honours in Fine Art in 2000. Now based in Wiltshire, Robin is a current studio holder at Drawing Projects UK.
Using household paint and varnish, Robin's work finds its subjects in abstracted images of aerial photographs of Earth from Space, and of biological cell images, expressions toward the macrocosm and the microcosm. The paintings aim to celebrate and exalt the continuity of organic form through her reading of these images. Inherent within this enquiry is her interest in how technology has enabled us to view ourselves existentially from these polar perspectives.
In Focus: Paintings by Robin Heaton is presented in The Entrance Hall and is open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday from 8am to 4pm and on Sundays 11am to 1pm, or by appointment. Please check with us in advance if travelling to see the exhibition as our opening hours may change.
