Aiko Robinson: I stain my heart with thoughts of you so resistant

May 8 - June 1

Aiko Robinson, The passion of the red camellia is a flame that never ceases, 2024. Watercolor and ink on paper, 57.3 x 76.6cm. Courtesy: the artist and Gow Langsford Gallery, Auckland.

Boldly erotic yet delicately intricate, I stain my heart with thoughts of you so resistant is Aiko Robinson’s first solo exhibition at Gow Langsford Gallery, the Perth-based artist having joined the gallery’s roster of represented artists last year.

Robinson’s practice engages the historic Japanese ukiyo-e art form of shunga – playfully erotic works that were prevalent during the Edo period (1600 – 1800) – seen through a contemporary lens. Her work is laboriously detailed, primarily working with traditional ink and printmaking techniques. Robinson sensitively explores themes of intimacy and sexual politics, capturing moments of passion, tenderness and romance between couples.
