ABOUT | ARTIST STATEMENT | CV | PORTFOLIO
Robin Kandel’s paintings hover between abstraction and representation. They reference childhood memories and family history, exhibiting themes of time, place, and measurement. Her paintings create a viewing field, sometimes evoking multiple photographs, other times resulting in rhythmic patterning as with the recent lakewater series, a reverie of growing up in the Great Lakes State. Kandel frequently uses video to further ideas in her paintings, putting herself through performative acts in much the same way that a child plays to understand the world.
