Whether working in oil, pastel, or encaustic, Robin Thornhill’s atmospheric paintings evoke a sense of stability and peace.  Strongly influenced by John Singer Sargent, the tactile quality of her work makes the timeless beauty of the New England landscape substantially present.  “There is so much chaos in the world that people forget to look for beauty and goodness,” says Robin.  “I want to remind them it’s here – as tangible as the materials I use and as real as I am.”  The sublime becomes grounded by the presence of her hand in the work.  Best known for her landscapes, Robin’s recent experiments with abstraction are also receiving recognition.  In this work, her authorship becomes even more apparent as she utilizes mixed media to develop her exploration of the theme of time.
