The intent of Annie Murphy-Robinson’s work is to allow the viewer to interpret meaning using their own experience. Her feelings/ thoughts behind it are directly related to her personal history with the subjects in the work. A certain sadness, hopelessness or resignation seems to always be present, for her it allows for deeper contemplation. Annie tends to title the work in a very straight-forward manner, that way the viewer again has access to the image and isn’t steered in a different direction.
Her technique is relatively unknown, she uses sandpaper as a medium to embed dry material into heavy paper.
