Fiona Robinson HRSA

Fiona Robinson is an artist who makes drawings in response to music. Her work is concerned with surface and the representation of space. Through line, diverse media and erasure she explores the interaction between sound, physical spaces and mark-making. Her recent work prioritises: Bach’s Cello Suites, John Cage’s works for prepared piano, Gavin Bryars site-specific suite for Chateau d’Oiron in France, Gabriel Fauré, Debussy and Chopin’s piano music. Using the language of drawing she creates an equivalent of, a transcription of, music. It is not a system of notation, not an alternative to a musical score to be reinterpreted, it is a response to the sound. Her drawings present a communication between composer and artist, a conversation between two practitioners, through the languages they use to express their ideas. This is where the music and the drawing connect.
