Renee Robbins creates detailed visual environments that consider the complex relationships between humans, nature, and the cosmos. Through painting, she explores the worlds of tiny cells, flowering botanicals, aquatic species, and celestial bodies. Moving between the real and imagined, Robbins’ work brings together microscopic and telescopic viewpoints. She positions hybrid floral/faunal forms within a space that simultaneously evoke the deep sea and the cosmos. By creating associations between things that are seemingly disparate, such as plankton and stars, her work presents a question or sparks a curiosity about the universe. In this way, her images respond to biodiversity and suggest a sense of our place within the natural world and create wonder.
