About

Robin Colodzin “Patterns” is a large mixed media collage in dark rich blue and green measuring 30 x 38.75 x 1.25 inches with its built-in wooden frame. A line of 10¢ tickets crosses the bottom, and the curves of old sewing patterns can be seen throughout. Collage elements include a card from an old French Monopoly game titled “Rue de la Paix”, clock arms set at 3:00, fabric edging, a wooden gear and a piece of measuring tape. The paint is applied roughly and the background is textured creating a vibrant energy. The work is built up in layers of acrylic paint, found paper, pencil and pastel on Masonite. The artist’s signature is on the reverse side. Robin Colodzin uses painting and collage to build environments where chaos gives way to order through pattern, color and theme. Bits and pieces of collage materials – a ticket, a snippet of a photo, a piece of a map, create touch points for a possible narrative. “Painting for me is a way to allow complex experiences and feelings to make up a whole” she says. “It need not be one thing – it can be calming and anxiety provoking, ordered and chaotic, dark and light, warm and cool. I hope that the work evokes feelings in the viewer, and creates a spaciousness that allows for contradictions to co-exist side by side." Colodzin’s inspirations include poetry, Buddhist philosophy and feminist musings on the impact of the social world on our sense of our physical selves.
