Artist Statement

My work explores ambiguity, systems, genres, and memorial. I seek to work with the material, understanding the properties and context by remaking, replacing.  I re-make colours out of the remnants of destruction. I am drawn to unpicking things, concepts, colours, to find poignant paradoxes within.

I do multi-disciplinary exploratory projects, drawing, painting, pigment-making, artist’s objects and books. I run Fulton Yard, an Art Place outside. My approach is interdisciplinary, making lateral connections between arts, sciences, social history.

I studied at St Martin’s School of Art, and Sheffield Hallam University

Katya Robin’s  artist’s books have been acquired by The Met Library, Joan Flasch Collection, Yale Center for British Art, The Floating Library, TATE Library, Chelsea School of Art Library etc.
