Jenny Robinson’s large-scale works on paper—prints clotted and heavy with ink—depict landscapes in post-industrial decline, populated by architecture on the periphery of everyday vision, abandoned and forgotten. Born to a family of engineers, her fascination with the nuance and proliferation of often-overlooked structural detail is reflected in her process. Pieces such as Harrison Street Billboard are documents that reveal the wear of time on built environments. A series of dry-point monoprints laid down on delicate Japanese paper, the images depict billboards in varying states of deterioration over a ten-year period, emphasizing the complexity of the structures themselves rather than the banality of the messages they carry.
