Robyn Fleet

She works methodically yet intuitively, setting up complicated relationships, connecting them through re discovery of events.

Robyn graduated with a Bachelor of Art and Design from Idea school (Eastern Institute of Technology, Napier New Zealand).

Robyn’s latest work is in memory of her late father, Rex Fleet. In 1955 he slipped and fell while deer-culling in the Ruahine Ranges, landing in a riverbed. He was stranded there in running water for three days, paralysed and unable to move. It took a party of 17 men to accomplish an almost impossible task in rescuing him. Mr Fleet was roped over perpendicular cliffs, lucky to come out alive. He went on to live a full, healthy life.
