Aiko Robinson: Bliss and branches

August 27, 2020 - September 26, 2020

Aiko Robinson, Pillow picture #4, 2020. Watercolour, gouache & ink on paper, 53.5 x 73cm. Courtesy: the artist and Fox Jensen McCrory, Auckland.

Aiko Robinson’s devotion to images of faceless coital engagement are truly radical, not because of their skilful and shrewd homage to the sexually explicit images of Shunga, so celebrated in Shinto culture, or because she chooses to make these images using the graphic techniques and vocabulary of the original Utamakura masters. It is because she is a young Japanese/New Zealand woman; because her works maintain respect for the past whilst mindfully and skilfully contemporising the precedents… and because she can really draw. Robinson positions herself as part of the deeply embedded history of eroticism in art that is woven into a broad cognisance across most cultures of the centrality and essence of sexuality.

The gallery will reopen and adhere to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions. An opening night for this exhibition will be announced soon.
