Annie Murphy Robinson
“The intent of my work is to allow the viewer to interpret meaning using their own experience. My feelings and thoughts behind it are directly related to my personal history with the subjects in the work, whether they are animate or inanimate. A certain sadness, hopelessness or resignation seems to always be present, for me it allows for deeper contemplation.” — Annie Murphy Robinson SHAREShare on FacebookShare on Twitter
THE ARTISTS: Based in Sacramento, Calif. Annie Murphy-Robinson uses a relatively unknown drawing technique to create large scale drawings, using sandpaper as a medium to embed dry material into heavy paper. Represented by Arcadia Contemporary in Los Angeles, she also holds a Masters of Art from California State University, Sacramento and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Southwestern Louisiana. Her work has been exhibited throughout California at the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento; Richard L. Nelson Gallery, Davis; Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento; La Luz De Jesus Gallery, Los Angeles; Hespe Gallery, San Francisco, and at Merced College; among others.
THE ART: The artwork chosen for the wrap project was reflective of what I felt to be kind of an Americana. The images reflect a sense of the Old West, timelessness and evoke a sense of memory.
THE PLACE: Lincoln Ave.
