Artist and CalArts alumna Robin Mitchell’s (Art BFA 72, MFA 74) solo exhibit Moment to Moment is on view at the Craig Krull Gallery in Santa Monica from July 13 through Aug. 31, with a reception on July 13 from 4 to 6 pm.
From the press release:
In Mitchell’s recent paintings, her brilliantly colored starbursts, orbs and linear overlays suggest that she is moving even deeper into what appear to be the molecular structures of her imagery. Like Zeno’s [dichotomy] paradox, one senses that Mitchell may continue to take a half step closer to her subject in an infinite exploration of form and color.
We posted a slideshow of artwork included in Moment to Moment, above.
Mitchell was an early member of the CalArts’ Feminist Art Program and worked on the historic Womanhouse Project. Her art focuses on symmetry and mark-making, as well as the mark’s transcendent ability to communicate an image and to suggest themes. Mitchell is a recipient of numerous awards including the National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist Fellowship for Painting, the Anonymous Was A Woman Award and the California Community Foundation Fellowship. “Mitchell’s as smart a painter as there is when it comes to the odd overlaps of the abstract, the nonobjective, the representational, the referential and the evocative,” says LA Weekly.
Located in Bergamot Station Arts Center, Craig Krull Gallery focuses on location-centric artwork, meaning a concentration on the relationship between the artist and their environment and milieu. The gallery represents a number of blue chip artists, including Peter Alexander, the late actor Dennis Hopper and Chouinard alumnus Llyn Foulkes (Art 59).
