Robin Feld
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Robin Feld is a Brooklyn artist who enjoys painting both outdoors and in the studio.  She works primarily in oils and watercolor and is excited to be experimenting with monoprinting.  She has a BFA from CUNY and has studied life drawing and painting at the Art Student's League in Manhattan.  Her work was recently chosen for exhibit by Curate NYC.


ARTIST STATEMENT

My work focuses on the feeling of landscape—inner and outer—combining the perceptions gathered both through direct observation and through sensations that glimmer at the edge of conscious thought and vision. 

My canvases often juxtapose wide expanses of color against active, delicate brushwork.  The paintings consist of a series of layers varying in texture and transparency. By scraping, pouring, glazing and blotting, I strive for an interplay between the layers, allowing greater or lesser glimpses of what lies beneath. Generally, a grid element is buried and brought back to varying degrees, echoing the lines within.  I do this as a means of bringing tension and order to the canvas—a bone structure of sorts.

Abstract expressionism, minimalism, Japanese and Chinese landscape painting and calligraphy are strong influences on my painting as are the line, shape, color and form that I “collect” while working with watercolor outdoors.
