I love the shimmery properties of gold and the energy that emerges from polarity of color, shape, and form. The grace and elegance of the gold figure, and model who was my inspiration, is juxtaposed with the heat of the surrounding reds. The left edge reveals layers of colors reminiscent of the delicacy of torn tissue paper balanced by the bold blue on the right. This piece is painted on gallery wrapped stretched canvas and ready to hang.
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.
