Made By Hand: Robyn Gordon

"My relationship between art and life is very intense. It is the process of living and creating that moves me. I approach my sculptures and paintings with the intent of having fun, splashing, scraping, pushing, pulling, dripping, wiping and carving my way into a state of animation. Intuition and my visual sensibilities click in; then the dialogue begins".  -  Antonius Roberts


  1. I am really loving these photos of the hands at work - it makes it more personal and real somehow so thank you for sharing. I love Robyn's work - so many stories layered into each piece and so earthy. This is a great description of the process too - about getting into it and making joy!

  2. So nice seeing some of Robyn's work process!

  3. It is so nice to see Robyn being showcased and at work. I love the use of symbolism within each piece, her works are truely inspirational.
