” My artwork is about empathy—for ourselves, our stories, and for the planet. When we spend time with art that moves us, we experience our shared humanity and feel our connection to the natural world.”
Welcome to the homepage of Robin Brooks Artist. Through my art-makingI explore aspects of nature and story. As I play and create I am mindful of the unavoidable reality of a rapidly changing climate. With this in the background, I try to create artwork that can inspire us and give us hope.
Collage is a playful process where the unexpected can happen. As I play with the papers, adding, arranging, and composing, I see possibilities and find new harmonies and dissonances. I invite you to “read” my collages as you would read a poem, finding the unexpected in the familiar.
I have been invited to give an artist talk on July 6th and a hands-on workshop on July 8th for the Waterville Area Art Society. My talk will be about my ongoing Foremothers Project and the workshop will be an opportunity for artists to explore their own Foremothers stories in drawing, painting, or collage. Both events are open to the public.
