Works by Robyn Ward

Robyn Ward (b.1982 Dublin) tells a bold narrative that is both timely and provocative through painting and sculpture. Born in Ireland and later living and working in Northern Ireland, Ward takes his personal experience of destruction, chaos, and governance, comment- ing on the breakdown of society, relating them to both historical and modern-day global conflict. This allows him to examine how the world has been shaped by the past, from climate change and environmental destruction to socio-economic inequality.

Reccurring images are obscured and unveiled in Ward’s multi-faceted canvases. Using wet, loose brush strokes with intricate detail and distinctive markings he tells this story through a nostalgic veil of innocence and naivety, revealing snapshots of the past while simultaneously obscuring or hiding others. “Each layer depicts a different fragment of time” Ward comments “often they are screenshots of parts of my life”.

His recent series “Fucked at birth” combines skills gained through the street art from Ward’s past along- side impressive abstract backgrounds. This multi-disciplinary approach allows Ward to capture energy, and a narrative that is both historical and personal.
