Robin Crofut-Brittingham is a Montreal based artist who uses her artistic talent to express her fears about the fate of planet Earth. Rather than creating images of doom and gloom, her most recent water colour series “Strange New Eden” depicts her positive hopes for an imagined future world.
Her thesis focuses on a future world where humans and nature exist together in harmony and rely on sustainable practices similar to those of primeval mankind which included matriarchies where women hunted and gathered with careful respect for their environment.
In another of her images, and in her words, a more post apocalyptic future nature has taken its revenge on mankind and turned itself back into a hostile, overgrown jungle where beauty and danger co-mingle and evidence of previous human existence is slowly sinking back beneath the weeds.
The artist achieved a Master’s Degree majoring in Fine Arts and Studio Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has been a recipient of the Murphy Cadogan award via The San Francisco Foundation and a Martha Boschen Porter Award via the Berkshire Taconic Foundation and her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Canada. She undertakes custom painting and design work together with public and private mural commissions.
