Annie Murphy Robinson's technique is relatively unknown, she uses sandpaper as a medium to embed dry material into heavy paper. Using this technique, she is able to “see” in the dark. She uses a myriad of photographic reference for the images of her daughters and draws from life the images of my old toys and memorabilia. The use of this technique takes the work to a “hyper-real” level and lends itself well to the pervasive feeling of melancholy that exists. Her intent is to confront the viewer and ask questions.
