An expressionist portrait of relationships as a dance. Dominant blue palette with hints of red, purple and pink that offers both calm and energy. Body language simultaneously suggests connection and separation, relaxation and a hint of unease. "Relationships can feel like a dance as we navigate the complexities of feelings, thoughts and needs," says Robin. "There can be an even flow or we may notice ourselves stepping on each other's toes or even our own."
Robin Okun's work is both intimate and highly relatable. Her paintings reflect an incredible understanding of how we express ourselves in deeply personal moments. By focusing almost exclusively on body language and an emotionally evocative color palette, Robin encourages us to think about each character's story. And in doing so, we often find our own stories in her paintings. She layers charcoal and acrylic paint with vibrant colors, bold shapes, and fluid lines to depict forms inspired by live models, photographs, and sculpture. Robin’s visual voice is unique and recognizable. Through her work, she strives to celebrate the varied human form.
