Manner showing in the bar:
reflect on my most recent work, it's apparent that nature is an
theme, with a keen focus on trees. Although there is a common thread of subject
matter, the application and the way I chose to represent trees varies greatly. This
is because I believe the emotional qualities of nature are not
concrete. They are ever changing with a significant
individualized interpretation. Bright colors and the unrealistic depiction
of nature inspire me, and I hope to communicate a feeling of being immersed in
an enchanted land; surrounded by energetically magical trees where one can
imagine themselves within."
Robinson is showing her photography in the greenhouse
Robinson views art as a process of rendering the unseen visible and the unheard
audible. The art experience for the artist and the viewer can, at its best,
enable the Touching of that juncture
between the culturally conditioned quotidian and our inner spirits, and,
thereby opening the doorway between the everyday and the universal in our lives. As an artist, Ms. Robinson finds this process
deeply moving and motivating.
Robinson was born in Grand Isle County,
and, is a VT Native with ancestors dating back to the founding of Bennington, the
Revolutionary War, and the subsequent settlement of South Hero, and
history. She has been a photographer and
fine artist all her life, and was accepted into fine arts 4 yr college program
based on her painting and drawing portfolio from High School, but chose to
enter an anthropology career at that juncture, subsequently her art was, until
recently, more of a hobby than a vocation.
Ms Robinson continued to paint and draw over the years but did not show
her work, choosing rather to give it as gifts, and her photography was focused
heavily on her academic interests with some art photography taken now and then
as it struck her, and she did a stint in photojournalism, in conjunction with a
journalism reporting job in the 1990s.
Robinson’s Photography covers a wide range.
Her landscapes are characterized by the openness of sky and the use of
line. Her portraits are candid and have
a sense of spontaneity. Her nature work
has a keen eye for design in detail, as well as enigma. Her paintings and charcoal, pencil, and
pastel are full of emotion at the same time that they attend to the details of
nature, light, and (often the human) form.
Ms. Robinson looks forward to sharing her new creations with the public
in the coming years."
