Inspired by the lush landscape of her native Colorado, Robin Cole Smith makes hyperrealistic paintings and drawings of trees, rock formations, bird nests, and other natural wonders. She conveys the magnitude of the environment through depictions of evening skies and dense forests. In some works, Smith homes in on specific details such as plant bark, rippling water, and fallen leaves. The artist approaches landscape painting with the reverence of a portraitist, isolating tree trunks and wasp nests to highlight their unique forms and textures. By employing a primarily black-and-white palette, Smith communicates the eternal quality of nature while also alluding to its fragility.
