Robin Sweaney‘s current practice focuses on documenting the concept of ‘home’ through painting and drawing houses in her home town of Mullumbimby on the New South Wales North Coast. Her residency in Hill End will provide the artist not only with a destination rich in vernacular architecture, but also an opportunity to respond to the journey and to explore notions of where we have come from (the familiar) and where we get to (the new). Robyn plans to respond to the outward identity of Hill End and explore whether the mythology of place influences how people live today.
Robyn is a teacher of Fine Arts at Lismore TAFE and former Co-Director of the Inc @ Piece Artist Run Exhibition Space at Mullumbimby. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows, most recently Emoh Ruo at the Tim Olsen Gallery, Sydney in 2007. Her work is held in the collections of the Tweed, Lismore and Grafton Regional Galleries.
