About San Francisco Artist Heather Robinson

Earthly Desires

In this collection of paintings, I explore the juxtaposition of everyday objects with ornamentation. These works represent some of my thoughts about my life and the relationships that govern it. The ordinary item depicted in each piece, an object held in my hand, acquires personal symbolism as I complete the painting. The patterns are all completely hand-painted and based on historical textile designs. Painting the design is a meticulous process which gives me opportunity to meditate on the meaning of the work – more than a decorative element, the pattern is a testament to the time and thought process involved. Patterns that first appear to be uniform and symmetrical, upon closer examination reveal themselves to be irregular and varied as a result of human imperfection. The pieces are obliquely autobiographical, but I hope they speak to the viewer.
