“ROBYN RAINES Mixed media artist Robyn Raines explores ideas surrounding what it means to be a collector. Referencing the long, rich history of textiles and expanding the notion of the book form, Raines creates structures that capture and remember the small, but often momentous details of daily life. Combining the familiarity of found objects with newer pieces made by hand, her work incorporates a wide variety of materials including paper, fiber, glass and steel. Robyn Raines is a graduate of Moore College of Art in Philadelphia where she studied textile design. She recently completed the Core Program at Penland School of Crafts. “

Title Quote: Albert Camus
” Medusa is a limited edition collection made of unique pieces,
made in silk with buttons from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, ornaments for
hats from the early 2oth century and a long list of details found on
trips made all over the world, that provide each piece’ a story itself…” -www.israelroca.com
This reminds me of Cinderellas shredded dress before her fairy princess came … I always liked the dress her friends, the birds and critter, made for her of found ribbons, remnants and pearls … Even once in shreds there is an enchantment greater than the perfect white ballgown could ever inspire … the dress certainly has a soul.
