About

“Nor fire” by Robin Colodzin is a mixed media work on canvas panel measuring 16 x 12 inches. Vivid, flame-like red predominates, contrasting with darker blues and greens in the textured background. Yellow dotted and inky black lines dance around behind thick vertical drips of red paint. Framed in a simple black wood floater frame it measures 18.625 x 14.625 x .75 inches. The artist’s signature is on the reverse of the panel. Inspired by an Emily Dickinson poem, "Nor fire" is part of Colodzin's "Embracing Contradiction" series. It takes its title from one of the early lines of Dickinson’s poem “It was not death, for I stood up”. 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.
