I’m Westward Ho! Launch Event
Friday 23rd August, 6-9pm
Stuart Robinson has created a mobile, moving artwork exploring his childhood journeys from the Midlands to coastal holidays in the South West. It features a 1980s Volvo 340 and a large Neon style arrow.
I’m Westward Ho! is part art homage, part personal journey, part wacky races and part creative investigation of the place holidays have in our lives.

Stuart Robinson’s work predominantly takes the form of installation and sculptural objects. He uses photography as an important element of his working process, producing objects and environments that are intriguing and visually engaging, often using seemingly familiar objects and shapes.
His work explores imagery and inspiration from a wide range of sources across art, media, landscape and popular culture digested and condensed into object and form. It explores familiar shapes, colour and materials from our daily encounters with media, signs and surroundings.
Stuart is based in Cornwall, his recent solo shows include; Promontory, The Gallery, Plymouth College of Art, 2017; Ham Fisted Half Cocked, Back Lane West, 2016; Get it Here – The Fish Factory, Falmouth, 2014.
