About Robinson & McMahon
About the artwork
This work is an original oil painting on wood panel and framed in a narrow mahogany tray frame. A unique visual, unspoken, communication between two painters painting on the same canvas. The soft, muted and blended ground colours provide a dialogue with the more direct mark making. It works alone, or in a set of two or three.
As a collaboration of two artists painting on the same canvas, with very different methods of using paint, Jason Robinson and Helen McMahon are guided by reaction and response, not imposing rules or process. A finished work exists as a result of all marks made by both artists, whether they are still seen, been obliterated or have just left a trace. There are times though when there is no harmony or discussion but rather a full blown argument and attack on each other ‘s marks. A number of these paintings have been left to calm down over a few years and as they have become more considered of each other ‘s actions, these battle scarred paintings have been salvaged. Sanding has bulldozed some of the blights but still left a trace, foundations that have been built upon and smoothed over, a kind of beauty from the rubble.
