Robin Hanes on her current body of work: “I continue to paint elaborate borders, often with wildlife I observe in or near the trees. The borders show an added dimension to the subject’s life. I often choose the mandala form which lends a note of honor to these trees. This fits well because there’s truly a spiritual aspect to trees. It is a loving meditation to paint them. Architecture is a theme in some of these borders. Trees inherently have a kind of architecture beyond human constructions.”
