A Modern Eden
The finely inked botanical drawings and textiles of Denver artist Marsha Robinson, aka Strange Dirt, seem suspended in a time warp, inspired by science and symmetry and maybe a touch of William Morris, yet they belong to no real period of art history. Distinctly personal, Robinson’s works are clearly the product of a decorative inner vision, beautiful and elegantly contemporary. If you’re not familiar with Strange Dirt’s out-of-time designs, you’ll have a chance to discover them February 6 at Super Ordinary Gallery, when the artist’s new solo show, A Modern Eden, opens.
“Marsha Robinson’s intricate floral patterns and compositions leave the viewer captivated with natural delight,” says gallery director Pedro Barrios of the works in the show, which are rendered delicately on cotton rag paper with ink, acrylic and silver leaf. “Every twist and turn mesmerizes with seemingly endless detail. For this exhibition, Marsha hopes to convey a sense of nostalgia, but with a modern twist.”
A Modern Eden, which fits perfectly into the general Super Ordinary aesthetic, opens with a reception from 6 to 10 p.m. and runs through the end of the month at the boutique/gallery, 3350 Brighton Boulevard in the Source. For information, visit svperordinary.com.
