Patrick Duffy examines Robinson’s approach to representing the sense of place encountered in the landscapes around Galway Bay. For forty years Robinson has been committed to a minutely-detailed exploration of the rocky outposts of the Aran islands, the Burren and Connemara, all of which are ancient landscapes deeply incised with the marks and memories of human occupation for more than two thousand years. In a world of collapsing distances and faster, more wide-ranging travel, Duffy argues that Robinson’s works in map and text illustrate the potential and possibilities in a reversion to ‘slow’ landscapes. In this respect, Robinson’s ‘endless proliferation of detours’ on foot and bicycle, has permitted a more intimate engagement with nature, environment and community.
