Not Just Another Pretty Face 2019

Program Overview


Renee Robbins

Renee Robbins creates detailed visual environments that consider the complex relationships between humans, nature, and the
cosmos. Through painting, she explores the worlds of tiny cells, flowering botanicals, aquatic species, and celestial bodies.
Moving between the real and imagined, Robbins’ work brings together microscopic and telescopic views; she positions
hybrid floral and faunal forms within a space that simultaneously evokes the deep sea and the cosmos. By creating
associations between things that are seemingly disparate, such as plankton and stars, her work sparks a curiosity about the
universe. Responding to biodiversity, her art suggests our place within the natural world while creating a sense of wonder for
all living things.
