Toe the Line: The Art of Robin Judkins

Sound Op Beth Adams with Robin Judkins at Kinder Gallery

24 min documentary broadcast by The Documentary Channel and TVNZ 6, 2009

A bravura performance on screen and on wood from Robin Judkins as we explore self expression and political views expressed through his painting. The Coast to Coast legend was laid up by a quintuple bypass operation and told to stop working; after 3 months he picked up his daughter’s art supplies and began painting driftwood collected from Sumner beach. Within 12 months of his operation he exhibited 57 pieces of his work at Kinder Gallery in Sumner, New Zealand. ‘Toe The Line’ is Robin’s story told in his own inimitable style.
