ARTmonday: Heather Robinson

San Francisco-based artist Heather Robinson wrote to me this fall after seeing my blog and Instagram posts about the Truro Art + Cocktails pop up event I held this summer. She was particularly drawn to Sarah Lutz’s abstract paintings, which has a similar feel to her own.

She says: [My] painting practice is fundamentally an exploration of surface through pattern, color, and texture. I have a magpie-like attraction to bright, colorful, decorated objects, but an orderly mind, a love for the grid and a strong schooling (from my architectural design studies) to mistrust the superficial. These contradictory urges come together in my paintings. I work in many layers of acrylic media, starting with a repeating fabric design at the base and adding elements both rigid and planned (geometric stencil repeats) and loose and unplanned (drips, washes, crackled layers).
