The highly anticipated "Outside-Inside" exhibition opens its doors on May 9th, 2024, at 4 PM. Listen to Robyn’s episode on the Creative Matters Podcast with Mandy Jakich. Robyn’s episode is a thought-provoking conversation that explores the intersection of art, identity, and creativity.

This exhibition promises to be a celebration of diversity, memory, and the essence of being.


Robyn Fleet invites us to delve into the intricate tapestry of human existence through her latest body of work. In his own words, the exhibition is a "celebration of identity," prompting viewers to ponder the question: "Who do we think we are?"


By layering memories, experiences, and events, Fleet meticulously constructs a visual narrative that transcends racial, cultural, and societal boundaries. Utilising oil sticks and paints, she imbues her creations with muted hues – her compositions are layered with moments of joy, sorrow, and everything in between.

At the heart of the exhibition lies a connection to the land, its people, and the creatures that inhabit it. Drawing from old family photographs, personal recollections, and the surrounding environment, Fleet crafts emotive and atmospheric artworks that speak to the essence of life itself.


"Outside-Inside" is not merely a collection of portraits but a reflection of the artist's introspective journey towards self-discovery. It invites us to reflect on our own identities and the myriad influences that shape who we are. As we immerse ourselves in the exhibition, we are reminded of the interconnectedness of humanity and the beauty that lies in embracing our differences.


Don't forget to listen to her episode on the Creative Matters Podcast, as she discusses her profound bond with the land, individuals, and animals, particularly her beloved cats and her dog Fred. Exploring her preference for painting and her attraction to somber, atmospheric landscapes, she reveals how caregiving experiences enrich her understanding and frequently influence her artistic approach.

Hosted by Mandy Jakich, this podcast promises to offer unique insights into the creative process and the profound impact of art on society. Tune in on Apple, Spotify, Google to join the conversation and delve deeper into the themes explored in "Outside-Inside."
