ROBIN DAWKINS

 

Artist Statement:

My paintings have been described as “delightful refracted worlds,” derived from visual information of nature and surrounding man-made structures of the urban landscape. Through memory and the imagination, I seek to transcend what I have seen, and what I have experienced through a world of geometric and biomorphic abstraction. All the elements of art, including color, line, shape, form, movement and texture are very exciting for me and ultimately, establish a place in my creative expression. My paintings explore vibrant color combinations with the goal of transforming my observations into simplified lively tapestries.

In 2012, I participated in the Millay Colony for the Arts, Artist Winter Shaker Program in Austerlitz, NY. I have completed several commissions including one for Boston Children’s Hospital.
