statement/bio

Through personal narratives of feminine mythology, family, and dreams, I explore the natural cycles of eating and excrement, beauty and vulgarity, desire and lust. Playful encounters with materials prompt my explorations of spaces and actions. 

 

Finding the sweet spot between hyper-femininity and aggression, my work is fueled by revulsion to excessive beauty. The interplay between lust and loathing is found within the works, as excess engorges the forms. Rites of passage, such as baptisms, pageants, birthday parties and debutant balls, are environments I am interested in exploring. The organic forms, referencing entrails, cocoons, scatology and cave formations, become sites of obsessive adornment. 

Raised in West Virginia, the eldest of nine children, Tif Robinette developed a vivacious imagination and a penchant for massive scale crafting. In a spirit of playfulness, she creates sickly-sweet multi-media projects that reference environments, relationships, and her own history with a sense of excess and frivolity, finding the crude and fantastic in the everyday. She works in many media simultaneously, including painting, installation, sculpture and performance.
