From within

A Second on the Severn Sea 1 from robin jenkins on Vimeo.

In this clip, you can see the view from one of the cameras inside the rig. In the first half of the film you can see the interior of the glass tank slowly misting up. This was caused by the tiniest drop of water and the warm summer sun. Later, the evening shots show a much crisper and defined view. So watch to the end.

In your diary now.

E28 Love


















Juan Cruz and my E28 staring lovingly into each others headlights.

my E28
















A glimpse of what's to come with my new project. Together with artist Juan Cruz, we will be working on a show titled; My E28. The E28 is the body shape of the 80's, 5 series, BMW that both Juan and I drive. The boat was towed by my E28 from New Brighton in Birkenhead to outside my studio in Stockwell, London where it is sitting now, ready for action.

Engine Running Neutral























After very few post recently and even less new work, I am about to start the next stage of my Severn Sea project. In the meanwhile, check out some random images coming your way of my new boat.

Moody Sea and Sky









After a week that threw up one difficulty after another, moments of true fear and despair followed by some fantastic and incredible things, dolphins and seals, the super cool students at Atlantic College and the help of Mich Crebe and the unbelievable expertise of Saul Mendelssohn the filming has been completed with great results. Now that I have the material it's time to compose the final outcome.

Here's what it looked like at St. Donats.

Spot The Difference













































Caitlin Smyth of Chelsea Space has chosen to mock me by taking the graphic from my recent show teaser and adding it to looky likey image of other bearded greats. The beard is my current affectation and is all part of my work as an artist. No one likes it and it's attracting some strange wild life, but it stopped me from smoking and it proves I'm all man. So there...
