Robyn Drake paints figures, still lifes and florals in oils, acrylics, oil & wax emulsions and charcoal on paper.. She has also produced monotypes, relief prints, pastels and charcoals with gouache. Beyond the tensions of volume and geometry, passion and order, is the pull to express the mythic icons in the light of a contemporary mysticism. She sees her art as a visual koan. Arete, the grounding principle of her work is an aspirational journey. Through the searching and the striving, she hopes to convey the deeper feelings of the world around us and which transcend the two dimensionality of the subject as transcribed into an art object.
