About Robin Repp

My work explores the concept of anticipation of the future or the unknown. With influences as diverse as Thomas Struth, Dorthea Lange, Elmer Bischoff, and Minor White, I have been using infrared photography, painting, printmaking, the figure in the landscape and social commentary topics to tell my story.

Ever since Berkeley, I have been fascinated by protest and social issues set in the landscape. What starts out as often simple white or abstracted figures against a dark background, leaves the viewer with a sense of dreamlike questioning. Who are these people and what is going on here?
