This work is really interesting. Robbie leans into surrealist methodologies: figures and their limbs morph into one another as silhouettes embrace, creating a curious scene on the canvas. Collaged facial features intrigue, with each eye looking in a different direction. Bizarre and dreamlike, this painting will stir up a different narrative, and questions, with each onlooker.

I really enjoy the intriguing combination of realism, abstraction and a sprinkling of surrealism contained within Robbie’s piece. The central figure appears slumped and weary, and the fragments of the face suggest inner torment. But I sense newfound purpose within the future projection of the character; a quiet determination.

Robbie’s skill can be seen in his choice of colour, composition and, most notably, in his manoeuvring between classical painterly strokes to the cartoonish black outline of his figures. Just as we travel between our inner thoughts and real life, his fractured black limbs traverse from the constructed world to that of flesh and bones.
