Mimi Robson

Mimi Robson gradated from Falmouth University in 2013 with a BA Hons in Fine Art. Since then, she has worked alongside renowned Printmaker John Howard. Specialising in both Etching and Mono Printing, Mimi creates collections of work that balance of discipline and spontaneity. Her work, visually and through her practice, becomes a metaphor for the flux within the ocean and our own nature.

‘Water at Dawn’ is a new collection of work that seeks to awaken a consciousness of seeing the universe in every instant, in every detail. It concentrates on simple, natural forces which are both the creation of absolute harmony and a great risk to its disturbance – a ripple, a reflection, a raindrop, a whip of wind; the transformation of matter.

Artist Statement 

.

The essence of printmaking, for me, is about touch. There is a physicality and roughness to etching; beating, burning and eroding, but there is also a delicacy. Sensitivity for the contours of the plate, the consistency of ink, the dampness of the papers and the strain of the press. When I etch I am totally present in the process; the variations of temperatures and the pressure of each touch and gesture. I must work along a very fine line of being discipled and relinquishing control – understanding and accepting the volatile outcome as metal reacts with acid. Within this balance I find real contentment.

.

All of my etchings are produced on copper and premium Somerset Satin Printmaking paper. As with all etchings, there is the ability to re-print and edition my images, yet I chose to limit my editions. Some of my work is composed from very sensitive and delicate bites, marks and aquatints, and so their editions may be limited to just 2 or 3 prints.
