Eóin Flannery situates Robinson’s visual and verbal works within contemporary environmental and postcolonial contexts by arguing that his career and body of work are exemplary engagements with the diverse scales of environmental change, degradation and belonging across Irish history. Making reference to each of Robinson’s publications on Aran and Connemara, as well as to his essays, Flannery highlights how Robinson’s work restores a sustainable and ethical relationship with place in the Irish context: place as a historically rooted and valued, while also marked by conscious interactions with the cultural histories of that locale.
