Each painting for me is an exploration of the creative process. Along with nonrepresentational paintings, I create abstract paintings inspired by sculptures of Neolithic Goddesses. I also offer workshops in Spontaneous Painting for anyone who wants to strengthen their creative powers.

by Lee Robison
Always in search of the right word,
the one that made the Universe
that glows in the dark—
empty of night, liquored of summer and holly—
the one that old shamans won't utter
except when solstice, moon, and weather congrue—
and then only to mumble
quickly wincing from the bitchy skies—
the word maidens wear arrogantly
like a never emptying purse against their thighs
and young men carry like a banner or rifle before them;
the word that only children may speak,
only women may know,
and only black horses may trundle from the wake.
The word like the wound of Atlas
always healing, never healed—
So—he searches into each day
a wasting man who understands color
but whose eyes never find it.
|The Bard by Lee Robison, 2006.

|Turquoise By Choice, Acrylic on canvas, 36 x
36 inches, 2006.
I like to work with the kind of random order that is found in nature, as illustrated for example, by the say twigs and leaves come to rest on the forest floor. Shown is a painting from a series called Line Paintings, works of gestural abstraction that generally involve linear fields and elements of length—lines straight, squiggley and curved, often complicated with spots, splashes and sometimes text and objects.
