Robin Kingston is a lecturer in Painting at the School of Art.
“The making of artwork is akin to a journey of discovery. It is not a linear trajectory, but rather can be a confluence of rather haphazard events. It is sometimes logical and sequential, and at other points the relationships are accidental, tangential and tenuous. It is a process of complexity and multiplicity.” (Robin Kingston. ‘The Un-Limiting Conditions’: An investigation into the roles of intuitive and rational thought in the construction of abstract painting. p. 1)

Her recent work investigates possibilities in contemporary abstract painting using traditional means as well as an investigation of painting and site. Robin in currently completing a PhD and the project examines the role of intuitive and rational thought in the construction of contemporary abstract painting. She seeks to extend the understanding of the complexity of the material processes and thought that contribute to content in the construction of abstract painting, including how context and placement can affect meaning. Robin teaches a variety of studio based courses in Painting, including a course she developed in Abstraction. She also coordinates and leads the annual New York Study Tour for the School of Art.
