About

Robin Colodzin's "But most like chaos II” is a mixed media work on canvas panel measuring 12 x 16 inches. Deep blues create a feeling of space, with yellow and red highlights leading the eye throughout the piece. Collage elements include watch hands, clock parts, netting and a face looking through a window. Framed in a simple black wood floater frame it measures 14.5 x 18.5 x .75 inches. The artist’s signature is on the reverse side. Inspired by an Emily Dickinson poem, "As if my life were shaven and fitted to a frame" is part of Colodzin's "Embracing Contradiction" series. Eclectic collage elements include a wooden gear, scraps of text, an architectural drawing, and a black and white photo of a woman’s eyes seen through a small window. A hand comes down from the top right, with white lines radiating downwards from the fingers like lightning, and an antique key hangs from a string. Its details continue to reveal themselves over repeated viewing 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.
