Artist Statement
Robin Meyer
Artist Statement

The contemptuous relationship between hope and doom is a looming presence on the planet and the ongoing subtext of my paintings. Our planet is demanding a more peaceful coexistence of the natural world and the manmade world. At an alarming rate of speed man changes the planet to aid humankind often at life's expense. We must learn to intertwine technology into the inner workings of the natural world.


By relating the emotional world to the environmental world my paintings become emotional landscapes—not any one place that we are familiar with—but rather multiple sites ripe for interpretation. The visual metaphors that exist in a fallen limb, an oddly positioned boulder or a world of hopeless snags offer countless meanings that relate to the human condition.


My recent paintings merge traditional painting and drawing practices with digital and printing technologies. This integration serves as an artistically effective tool in the art-making process but also symbolizes how, as humans move into the future, we must find ways to develop a symbiotic relationship between nature and our technologies. “Advancements” will happen. The crossroads where we find ourselves may be our last opportunity to get it right; our future and the future of the planet is at stake.
