Please join us for a lecture with artist Robin Hill.
Robin Hill is an artist whose work focuses on the intersection between drawing, photography, and sculpture. Her recent work takes on a collaborative sensibility, where objects and materials which have been rejected by others have served as starting points for acts of transformation.
The underlying conceptual thread that moves throughout her work is her interest in collection, extraction, re-presentation, and in transforming seemingly inconsequential matter and into meaningful statements about matter itself, which ultimately becomes a mediation on time. She strives to give shape to nuance and to relocate familiar things in an unfamiliar order. While handmade might best describe her early work, hand-altered is a more apt description for the work she is doing today. She is on the faculty of the Studio Art Program, Department of Art and Art History, at the University of California at Davis. robin-hill.net
