a literary journal published by the Black Earth Institute dedicated to re-forging the links between art and spirit, earth and society
Based in Borrego Springs California, artist Robin Young works in mixed media focusing mostly on collage and contemporary art making. Her focus on collage art using magazine clippings, masking tape, wallpaper, jewelry, feathers, foil, etc. allows her to develop deep into the whimsical and intuitive compositions she is known for. From large, life-sized pieces and 3D sculptures to small postcard-sized arrangements, Robin’s keen eye and gripping esthetic guide her viewers into her own semi-readymade world. Repurposing these nostalgic images for lighthearted and sometimes disquieting messages; Robin’s artistic universe is strange, funky, sometimes perverse and always alluring.
