While studying for a degree in geography, he painted at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford where his tutor was Geoffrey Rhoades. After graduation he went on to complete a post graduate qualification in photography at the London College of Printing.
His paintings in oils and acrylics are principally of landscapes, often of small details or the effects of weather. It is this combination of geography and art which afford him a unique way of seeing and interpreting landscape.
In his photography, he uses film rather than digital imagery. He hand prints traditional black and white silver halide prints from his original film negatives. His subject matter comprises rural and urban landscapes, often focusing on small details. He is also interested in portraiture and macro photography, especially in black and white.
He has exhibited in London, Brussels, Chichester and at East Anglian venues including the Snape Maltings Foundation, the Minories in Colchester and the Highwayman’s Gallery in Risby.
“The space in Ivan Robinson’s landscapes is flattened into ambiguous and very beautiful graphic images”. … Sarah Kent, Visual Arts Editor, Time Out Magazine, reviewing his photography exhibition in London
