Through the use of positive and negative space, motion and subject matter, Robin Harris explores the infinite possibilities of gastronomic whimsy in her contemporary acrylic paintings.   
Robin’s paintings center around motion. Her goal is to completely capture the viewer’s attention enough that they become caught up in the moment, sufficiently engaged that the results of movement are fully imagined. The subject matter is manipulated by the artist, allowing the observer to complete the actions that has been initiated. In other words, the viewer becomes a very real part of the process of creating or eliciting an emotional response.
As she has come to realize over the years, engagement is itself the definition of art.

I can often be found painting and displaying my work in Studio 15, McGuffey Art Center, Charlottesville VA.
