Robin is inspired by nature’s design and endurance; and how subliminal forces impact on social, cultural and environmental perspectives.
Through monotone “marks” she strives to express and share empathy for the viewer to recognize universal compassionate matters.
As a “mark maker” she considers her mark is like a seed. To grow and survive it needs basic elements: it needs to be nourished, aired, practiced and protected. It needs to be resilient as it needs to be questioned, so when it’s harvested it will flourish, inspire and realise its potential.
Communication and empathy are the seeds sown in her practice: collections of marks telling stories of people, of perceptions and about interpreting marks of subtle nuances.
Through her practice she is but an observer: joy comes from connecting with various medium as a means to express and share her thoughts.
Inspiration comes from extra ordinary acts by humble people and those who have overcome great hurdles to reach their potential – along with a deep reverence to nature – in its splendour, resilience and seemingly perfect mathematical structure.
Hence a simple mark pays homage to others, to our environment and to an awareness that the prospect of possibilities, probabilities and potential exist in our own landscape.
