About the Artist:
Becky Robbin's Yugen Series paintings explore spirituality and nature. Yugen is an important process in Japanese aesthetics where the artist strives to achieve "an awareness of the Universe that triggers an emotional response too deep and powerful for words." For Robbins, these paintings are a visual diary/mind map of her extraordinary experiences exploring diverse cultures and creatures in our world.
