People often ask me why I paint women. This piece repeats a pattern that often surfaces in my work. Women become visible through the shapes and colors that I lay onto the canvas. I was happy to greet this woman and connect with her as she sits seemingly unaccompanied by another. I appreciate moments of solitude and peace within the uncertainty and unpredictability of life.

Getting to Know Robin

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.
