Robin Lee paints like a jazzer; she incorporates form, improvisation, attention to tradition and a drive for innovation in her work. To say that Robin’s work is influenced by the impressionists is like saying that jazz is influenced by blues. There is a continuity of tradition that is clear to the casual observer, but her daring use of color palates, textures, and clear technique suggest an artist with a modern aesthetic.
Robin puts it best when she says, “I learned Art, and Jazz is my thing.” To view her art is to see jazz impressions of simple subjects that incite the mind to see that the image is the means to experience the subject: the dance between the imaginations of the artist and the viewer.
