Columbine High School graduate Robin Cole is an oil painter working in the tradition of realism. Though related to the familiar genres of landscape painting and portraiture, her work explores a slightly unusual, more nuanced, and closely experienced relationship with nature that is at once otherworldly and scientific.
Cole’s solo exhibition Genesis explores inner wildness through the depiction of outer wildness. Cole uses the natural world as a mirror, reflecting the inner terrain of the human condition. Her experience of becoming a mother profoundly altered the lens through which Cole views the world, bringing new joys and brightness into familiar scenes.
Cole is represented by Gallery 1261 in Denver, Colorado.
