Robin Denevan: Pacific Fog

Robin Denevan: Pacific Fog


Robin Denevan says, "My work is about process with an emphasis on the organic properties of the materials I use and how they mimic nature and landscape. I do not render a landscape as much as I allow the materials to naturally create one.

I use aluminum and steel sheets so that I can work on a smooth and consistent surface. The sheets are sanded, sometimes primed and submerged in several gallons of mineral spirits. I pour oil paint into the solution and mix it until it is cloudy. Over the period of several days the particles of oil color precipitate and leave sediment on the aluminum. After the oil has completely separated from the mineral spirits I repeat the process with another color. I will sometimes sand or manipulate the surface after the bath. The painting is sealed with a protective finish and mounted on a wood substrate."
