Circle — Moon & Sun: Live Painting by Robin Ann Meyer & Rie Nishimura — 4/25/15
January 14, 2016 @ 1:39 pm EST
CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) invites you to Circle — Moon & Sun, a live art happening organized by CRS Gallery Director Rie Nishimura and painter Robin Ann Meyer. The event celebrates the somatic nature of painting, allowing the audience to experience the roles that kinetic energy and physical abilities/limitations play in the creative process. Moving dynamically around a large shared canvas, Ms. Nishimura will paint with her bare hands while Ms. Meyer will paint holding her brush with her feet.
The performance will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 6:30 – 7 pm and will be followed by a wine reception with the artists.
About Robin Ann Meyer
I was a terrible child. I could never sit still – except when I was placed at my art table with the necessary supplies. I became completely transfixed with the bright colors and shapes that would unfold. I think about my work constantly. Like a cloud passing through the sky, my paintings pass through my mind. There is a lot of trust involved in the way I create. If it feels right, I go with it. Acceptance is big part of my process. In the abstract, the artist is left completely on their own. Decisons are internal. I know a painting is done by a feeling I can’t entirely explain. I use enamel because of its liquidity. The drips and streaks act as an extension of myself in the moments I have no control. My current work is all about the human condition. How does it feel to be passing through this life – confined as a consciousness to this particular form? What can I discover about this space? Where can we go with it? What are we really/truly capable of at this point in our development?
