Robyn Neild has always considered the human body as a fluctuating vessel, carrying narratives and the possibility of transformation. After a degree in Fashion Design, at London’s Middlesex University, Neild began her career as a fashion illustrator for magazines such as Vogue or Glamour. Later, relocating to the Kent coast and collaborating with a foundry, she began to explore the possibilities of the three-dimensional. The concept of the body as an art object became more of a focus for the artist.
Texture and form are of paramount significance. The artist enjoys the impression of fingerprints left behind in the modelling wax, dictating a journey of where her hands have fluidly shaped the forms and figures.
The intricate modelling, combined with the ‘lost wax' casting technique, forces the metal to take on the delicate structures or halt altogether: leaving gaps and pauses, pregnant with absence.
Robyn has recently received the following awards :
Wales Contemporary 3-Dimensional 1st Prize, 2020
Royal Cambrian Academy Annual Open, Highly commended, 2021
And is a member of the ‘Society of Scottish Artists'
