About

Katya Robin and her drawing of Charlotte Berend-Corinth’s self-portrait

This year I am painting cleaners and waitresses and where they work. I select limited palettes to interpret these interiors. My brushstrokes echo the cleaning actions. My source material includes promotional photos and covert sketching in hospitals & public offices. 

Research and critical analysis of art history and visual culture underpin my practice. I combine a conceptual mindset with painterly technique.
