About

oil on canvas in thin wood frame
48 x 30 inches

This vertical, contemporary abstract painting with a vibrant palette was created by Hudson Valley-based artist Corinne Robbins. This abstracted landscape with a mid-century modern sensibility exhibits a beautiful range of yellow beige, royal and sky blue, slate, and white organic block patterns. Each shape, painted separately in a puzzle like configuration, is composed to suggest an abstracted landscape. Paint is built up on the canvas in textured layers for a unique impasto effect, which the artist achieves through her exclusive use of a palette knife. The abstract work is complimented with a simple, thin wood frame. A sturdy wire on the back provides for easy installation.

About the artist and work:
Boldly graphic in color and form, with a tactility you can almost taste, the paintings of Corinne Robbins capture the very essence of the landscape where she lives. Her creative methods are shaped by inherent artistic inclination as well as pedagogical influence, the latter having occurred in Bennington College before completing her MFA at Hunter College. “I like to think of my work as liminal, not fully abstract and not exactly realistic,” she explains.

Like an improvisational performance, these “liminal” paintings are both started and finished in one fluent session. Her process begins with a simple line drawing on white canvas. She then uses her palette knife to fill in blocks of color, each hue present in and crucial to the blending of the next. The result is a thoughtful pattern of raw, abstracted shapes that are grounded in the horizon line or in a thicket of triangular-shaped pine trees. By means of stylized imagery, Robbins shares a gritty interpretation of the Hudson Valley landscape.
