Heather Robinson’s painting practice is fundamentally an exploration of surface through pattern, color, and texture. She has a magpie-like attraction to bright, colorful, decorated objects, but an orderly mind, a love for the grid and a strong schooling (from her architectural design studies) to mistrust the superficial. These contradictory urges come together in Heather’s paintings. She works in many layers of acrylic media, starting with a repeating fabric design at the base and adding elements both rigid and planned (geometric stencil repeats) and loose and unplanned (drips, washes, crackled layers). Abstracted floral forms and decorative elements make an appearance, like dreams of old-fashioned textiles. With these paintings, Heather celebrates the surface.
