A6 Artist Member Robin Thomas begins her mixed-media works with a printed base layer, which she treats as an underpainting for her subsequent layers of gouache and watercolor. In this new work, the sepia-toned base—printed from a collagraph plate—combines a wide variety of patterns and textures that are carved, drawn and pressed into the plate surface. Thomas departs from her typical imagery and ventures into the abstract. Her nature-based palette is supplanted by bright, strong color.
