New Digitized color photocollage by Robin Chandler. 7×7 digital abstract on photographic paper. “The Traveler”

December 26, 2009

The “Traveler” series draws on repeated patterns and iconic shapes in my collages-flying priestesses, gingko leaves, dancers, forms from nature, iterations of the female figure, mask spirits-all reduced to their minimal representational outlines.

All of these forms have symbolic meaning for me. For example, my childhood was spent with sports and dancing; thus, the dancer in flight in ‘Traveler’ signifies the aesthetic power of dynamic motion.

These basic forms are re-articulated, digitized, and recycled into other works. With the onset of digitization, I’ve recycled thousands of slides into digital formats to design new experimental works. The basic forms remain freehand constructions and are not created in programs.
