A Series of Minor Distractions ©Mikel Robinson
Mikel Robinson is one of the most prolific artists represented by Through This Lens. His work is almost always mixed media based on photography. Limited edition print sizes range from 10"x10" on paper to approximately 84"x84" on wooden box panels. The box panels are invariably mixed media, typically beginning with the box constructed by the artist, then covered with sections of pigment-prints to form a whole image. They are then treated with various materials including earth from his native North Carolina and often with metallic foils. The entire piece is then coated with encaustic made from North Carolina beeswax. Many of his works are not only about North Carolina, but are literally made from parts of North Carolina.
Through This Lens has sponsored two formal exhibitons of Mikel's works, and always has a collection of his prints and mixed-media works for viewing and purchase.
