The work of Robyn Pedley reveals her passion for light, tone and the colour possibilities available through paint. She envisages the subject as secondary to the essence and mood created through colour and form with the final image emerging as a result of her multi layered approach. Accordingly, her process includes a combination of directly drawing from the landscape along with interpreting and abstracting to bring about a unique expression of the subject.
“I like to think of the creative process like story-telling, in a similar way that a writer will carry out research for a story. Using visual reference material gathered on location, photos, sketches, personal observation and interpretation I think of myself sculpting or carving out my ideas in beautiful and interesting lines, forms and colours. My intention is that the story expressed will speak to people’s hearts and lift their spirit.” – Robyn Pedley
Her role as co-director, workshop presenter and resident artist at Bobbie P Gallery brings the creative process directly to the viewing public which she finds stimulating and engaging. Her works are held in public and private collections both overseas and nationally.
