With John McDonald

Past in conversation

William Robinson pays a discreet homage to the artists he admires, and shows respect for the humble items he has gathered from many sources ... The aim is not to break new ground but to dig ever more deeply into a well-worked quarry, uncovering motifs and relationships that are only available to those artists who understand that inspiration is perfectly compatible with the most patient investigation.
