Roberta Moore Contemporary is thrilled to announce 'Redacted', a new series of work by ground-breaking art photographer Paul Robinson. The exhibition will take place at the Gallery in Cork Street, 22 – 27 April 2013.
'Redacted' incorporates several integrated works –from metropolises worldwide – creating a mesmerising series evoked by cities all over the world. Finding inspiration in global travels, Robinson exhibits regularly in the UK, the US and Asia. Capturing the ‘moods’ of cities and the spirits of their people – from Paris, London, Rome and Florence to Hong Kong, Shanghai and Bangkok – multiple exposures combine architecture, portraiture, landscape, light and texture on a single image. The culmination is a panorama of lyricism, poetry, mystery and intrigue.
“I have always been fascinated by other lands. Los Angeles is and always has been my home, but I feel like there are pieces of myself scattered all over the world, in any city I have spent any time at all. Better yet, I feel that pieces of those cities make up the man I am today.” said Paul.
Robinson explains, however, that it is LA itself, his hometown, which is the driving force of many pieces in this particular collection: “When I started this series I made a conscious decision to focus much of my energy on the spirit of Los Angeles. It’s my hometown and most beloved place in the world – and yet so many images from previous exhibitions have been inspired by other cities.
“The work What I See – as well as being the first of the LA-inspired pieces is also the impetus for both the title and theme of the entire series: redaction.”
Redaction, a process associated with combining multiple source texts, is one Robinson has evolved and effectively translated into the purely visual. Forming a collective body of work, the resulting exhibition is definitive and coherent.
'Redacted' will be on at the Gallery in Cork Street, 22 – 27 April 2013. For further information go to the Roberta Moore
