Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist
Natalie Robinson is a Chinese-Canadian artist from Burnaby, British Columbia. She is honoured to live as an uninvited guest on unceded Traditional Coast Salish Lands, including the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. She is a recent Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate with a major in Visual Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Working primarily in oil paint, her practice revolves around the quotidian, with an emphasis on exploring the overfamiliar and mundane. Since attending Emily Carr University, her practice has shifted from photo realism to representational abstraction.

Samples of my work
My curiosity lies with the overfamiliar and mundane aspects of day to day life. My painting practice is a continuous exploration of perspective, form, colour and my relationship to the often intimate, domestic places I draw inspiration from to recreate as a ‘familiar-nowhere.’ I hope to disrupt the figure-ground relationship, each painting living as a puzzle of space and form interacting with each other. The oil paintings attempt to lie on the threshold of the intangible - surreal-like spaces emerge from the quotidian, and are rendered unrecognizable.
