As a viewer, this painting presents me with an interesting question. Are the figures mirroring each other or is the woman facing me contemplating herself in the mirror of her mind? As the artist, I almost always feel a sense of surprise as the layers of paint and charcoal transform the blank canvas into a finished piece. It's as if I'm mirroring an inner source of my own. It is fun and pretty weird all at the same time.
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.
