Robin Cooper's creations are explosions of whimsical color. When we hear someone giggling in the gallery, we can be sure that someone has discovered her work. Her process as described by Robin: What are your paintings/collages made of? I call them paintings and they are made with layers and layers of painted canvas. Do you use Duck Tape? No, it is all made with layers and layers of painted canvas. Do you use leather? No, it is all made with layers and layers of painted canvas. Do you use wood? No, it is all made with layers and layers of painted canvas. What do you call your style of art? Well, as someone who has had no formal training this is definitely a type of folk art. Since, in my humble opinion, all of the pieces are a bit more polished than the average folk art I like to call it "sophisticated folk". But if you have a better name for it please let me know. What have you done to ensure the quality of the work? All of the materials: canvas, paint, adhesive, and varnish are of the highest archival rating available. However you should protect the paintings from both heat and humidity as these can damage my work if exposed of a prolonged period of time.
