About

Robin Colodzin’s “Poem to the Horizon” is a 16 x 12 x 1 inch mixed media collage on a canvas panel created with acrylic, found paper and pencil. It suggests a distant landscape viewed over vivid blue water. At the top are scraps of printed text torn from a book. Dotted trails of red paint dance across both sky and book pages. Though unframed, it can be hung as is, with the 1 inch black wooden sides giving it a finished look, and setting it forward from the wall. The artist’s signature is on the reverse of the panel. Small dots of bright orange contrast nicely with the blue of the water. In the lower left, there is light blue corrugated cardboard. Small pieces of lighter orange paper also appear in the lower half of the painting. The sky has rich texture, with white and hints of green and grey layered over a lighter blue. 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.
