The familiar front of a high rise at dusk swells with cascading light. Each window block correlates into a soft patchwork pattern, breaking up the regimented architecture of steel and glass to orchestrate a painterly consideration of buildings that dominate the city’s landscape. Keith Robinson’s paintings seem to lie between Georgia O’Keefe’s romanticized depiction of New York skyscrapers and the De Stijl school of abstract painters, whose ‘concrete’ paintings contain a sense of rhythm in their shape and form. His thin and fluid palette creates a dense and shimmering mirage on canvas, playfully contradicting the very structures he is representing.
