Robin F. Williams
Robin F. Williams (born 1984, Columbus, Ohio) is a contemporary painter based in Brooklyn, New York.
She holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, Rhode Island.
She has been exhibited at galleries including Bard College at Simon’s Rock, P.P.O.W. Gallery, Grand Central Art Center at CSUF, The Hole NYC, and Sargent’s Daughters. Williams’ exhibition have been noted in publications the New York Magazine and Juxtapoz.
Williams presents women in the poses of fashion-magazine advertising.
Discussing her act out in the New York Times, chief art-critic Roberta Smith asserts, “The paintings are extravagantly in-your-face all but execution, style, image and social thrust. They accept aim at the impossible idealizations of women in both art and advertising, depicting mostly nude and aloof androgynous supermodels, and the occasional feline, with a new kind of cool nevertheless visceral bravura.”
