Summer Exhibition – Robin Stemp

Why not pop in and see our Summer Exhibition on now until the 4th August? With works from both new and old faces there is something for everyone! Take for example Photographic Artist Robin Stemp…

Originally a painter, Robin Stemp was seduced into photography in the mid 1990’s. However, she still thinks in that way and so her images are intentionally quite painterly. This is quite marked in the interiors, which came about when the American poets, Debora Greger and William Logan found a dolls’ house on a skip and immediately thought of Robin. Because she likes large, almost empty rooms to photograph and she lives in a small house, she has to create her own and these have to be in miniature. By being sparsely furnished (if at all) they can evoke a mood – which mood is up to the viewer.

‘I line up objects on a shelf in my studio and watch the light move in through the open windows, with light and objects sharing an equal part in the composition. Maybe my interest in domestic subjects was forged when, as a working artist and mother of three, I had to multi task and could not go off in search of inspiration, and so found it in the things immediately around me.’

As a painter Robin exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, New English Art Club, Royal Watercolour Society and in many solo shows in Cambridge and elsewhere. Robin’s photographs have also been exhibited widely and are in various public and private collections. Working as an art journalist, meant that she was in contact with every kind of visual art and this has opened her eyes to all possibilities.
