An artist expresses — that’s how they interpret and communicate. It can be personal or happening to everyone (9/11 is a good example of that), but artists gotta make art. If you’re interested in sociology and psychology like Christina Robinson, art really helps you understand the world. In other words, her oil paintings help her learn and cope. “My artwork is an ongoing documentation of my immediate frame of reference,” says Robinson. “I tend to take an introspective approach to art, allowing my intuition to guide me through what needs to be communicated with each piece, … [portraying] emotions … [or] as a meditational outlet through color and shape.” The opening reception is during the July 3 First Friday Trolley Hop from 5-9 p.m.
