Robin Clare uses her art as a means to connect and explore her culture.
“I spent my first four years in Belize until my family returned to Jamaica, where my love affair with art began. Many of my childhood afternoons and vacation days were spent in local markets watching crafts people create their wares, with enthusiastic offers to help from my part...”
Upon the completion of her secondary schooling she was awarded a number of scholarships in which she took on study in areas of architectural drafting, studio arts and archaeology. She continued her education thereafter and has completed a Diploma of Studio Arts at Capilano College, British Columbia, Canada, and a BA specialising in Painting from Camberwell College of Arts, University of Arts London.
Robin’s artistic practice has evolved to push the boundaries between contemporary art and graphic design. Through this alcove of artistry she has been exposed to working with esteemed clothing companies like Stussy Worldwide, record companies and international sound systems like Mixpak Records and Million Vibes Sound.
Her work looks at the anthropological (particularly cultural) connections of dance form in both Jamaican and other African derived regions; Creole and Caribbean. Her artworks incorporate a plethora of vibrant colour, text, line drawing and repeated patterns that explore the evolution of the musical and cultural outputs of Jamaica.
During the course of her artist life, she’s had many exhibitions worldwide; across the UK, Europe, Australia and the US. Her works today sit in both private and public collections in Europe, Asia and North America and she has been commissioned to create artworks for both corporate bodies and individual collectors
