May 2017 - The Art World: Robyn Wellman
Robyn Wellman helps further push the artistic talent that exists here in New Mexico. Wellman’s artwork tells a story, whether it’s bringing the love of the New Mexico skyline and landscape onto a canvas or showing daily life in the Land of Enchantment. Robyn shared a bit about her love for art and where we can experience her gorgeous work.
Where did you love of art come from?
I think I was born with it. I’ve always been attracted to art, beautiful pictures, and everything visual. I’m a very visual thinker. What I love about art is the way you can exaggerate the things you see and transform them. You can exaggerate the perspective and the colors to create a new world and try to draw the viewer into your piece.
What medium do you prefer?
I like oils for their vibrant colors. I’d like to explore pastels this year.
What upcoming shows do you have coming up?
My work is currently being shown as part of a “new artists” show in Weems Gallery.
What goals do you have for your art?
I want to gain more complexity in my work. I want for my pieces to tell a story and transport the viewer to a different place...to a quiet adobe church or a rural setting or back to a Christmas luminaria memory. I want my paintings to develop in that direction.
