Artist's Statement

For years I have kept my paintings, sculptures and etchings hidden away from public view, even from my closest friends and family. Only recently have I let open the shutters to this window to others and myself. Having reached a maturity that I believe can only be reached with the passage of time. A collective memory of puzzle pieces that finally fit to express a thought spoken but not heard before. Those who know my graphic work are often surprised by the spirit and challenges put forward by my world of oil and color at first. After they look at this private diary, turning the pages, they reach a satisfied sense of having known this side of me all along. I feel each of my works emerges like a beautiful beach with a receding tide. Different, familiar, comforting and controlled by forces beyond our grasp. Parts of a larger puzzle whose completion lies over the horizon. A journey I approach with great anticipation and no apprehension.

Robin is a 1977 graduate of the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. Since 1977 he has worked for the National Geographic Society, Time Life Books, Time Life Music and in 1995 established his own Studio in Falls Church, Virginia. Recent exhibited works have included the painting The Nomad's Dream: Jaffa Gate at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and his exhibition of recent etchings, paintings and emergents at the Longwood College's Bedford Gallery. The Emergents: Fifty Words was produced during the last year and a half. Fifty words * 5 minutes * No changes
