David Robson | Winds of Change
15 November - 17 December 2017
At the beginning of the twentieth century Japan changed forever - from a feudal society to a struggling democracy. The artist depicts flying machines, visualising the new technology that must have caused much concern when they first appeared in the skies over Imperial Japan.
David Robson has studied art for over 60 years. His specialty is watercolour. His style has been compared to the classic Ukiyo-e period of Japanese woodcut prints. His theme is ‘flight’ and the changes represented by flying machines that first appeared in the skies over Imperial Japan at the turn of the twentieth century.
