About Alexander


Alexander K-Robinson was born in Berlin but currently lives in Bristol. He works in various media, from painting and printing to sculpture and construction. Yearning for change, Robinson abandoned a career in psychology to pursue the arts”a change of direction which eventually led him to his present task of creating objects of art from antique books of up to a hundred years old.

Robinson prefers to use nonfiction books, e.g. popular science manuals and archaic encyclopaedias. His process is “leafing through each one, page by page, to find images which inspire me, cutting around images and removing some.” The overall structure of the book is left intact, however, and he also resists the urge to impose material sourced outside: “The final result is not merely a product of choices, but an invitation to the viewer to form his own storyline.”

These are beautiful! especially the first one. I would pay good money for a work of art like that

Very nicely
done , it appears the man under water is doing things that need to be done on the surface ... in the light of day.
Thanks for sharing

I will return here again

...and again

...and again.

Only a single extended, exploration of this art is not enough.

Thank you, Mr. K-Robinson.

I love love love this so much! I've seen projects and pieces like this done before but never quite so captivating. This is beautiful. I love it!

I love this piece. It is relaxing. The colors are earth colors in muted tones: relaxing. The man is, to me, dreaming. Dreaming of the ocean and music, of which both are soothing to the soul.
I know of an art student who used an old book in a similar way and the results were also astounding.
I think that your background in Psychology is represented in your art; the subconscious.
Thanks,
Rose

Wonderful, exciting, intriguing. It would be interesting to know if Korzer-Robinson studied Jungian psychology before he found himself as an artist.

I love it.

Brilliant! What a marvelous idea.

Very eye catching. These are the paintings that keep you standing in front of them.

What a wonderful way to preserve the antiquity of books in a modern setting. A good way to combine his interest in psychology and art. I was opposed to the destruction of our old texts, but I can see that this is an innovative way to keep the best of both worlds! Thank you!
