Blue During Blues

Robin Ross

Robin Ross recalls being influenced as a child by the copies of Degas and Braque paintings over her parent's couch that gave her a personal sense of color and immediacy. At the age of eighteen she went into a brief coma, a experience that added an aspect of deep spirituality to her whole life.

Educated at the University of Colorado and New York University, Ross has traveled and lived in many cities, but has been living and working in Brooklyn NY for the past 21 years.

Her work has appeared in publications including Art in General Manual 1992-1993 (1994), The New York Daily News (2002), And Then (2003), and Flying Into the Sun (2004). Ross has appeared on Live at Five as a featured artist on NBC's "Local Focus" (1996), in the independent film Animal Postures by David Varga (1997), and in "Robin Ross: A Look at Hands” directed by filmmaker Leybe Diaz (2004). Her work is present in many private and public collections, including Pfizer Inc. the Brooklyn Marriott Hotel, and the International Monetary Fund. Ross has been awarded grants including the Adolph and Ester Gottlieb Foundation (1997), a residency from the Adesjo Fundacion in Ocoa, DR (2000), and the Mimi S. Dejanikus Award (2004 and 2006). She has recently been featured in Zeek, and is currently represented by Tabla Rasa Gallery.
