Influenced by a constellation of subjects, including erotic literature, Japanese aesthetics, contemporary dance, and the fashion photography of Guy Bourdin, my predominantly image-based practice has recently expanded into performance, video, and installation. Across this range of media, the body of the woman-artist has remained my central focus. Using the recurring motif of the covered, disguised, or faceless figure, my work seeks to explore the physical, emotional, and spiritual territories of the body of the woman-artist. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to a Canadian mother and Welsh father, Robyn LeRoy-Evans spent much of her early life on the move. The new experiences, emotions, and challenges that unfamiliar locations hold are at the core of her practice, compelling her to make physical responses to her ever-changing surroundings. In 2012 she achieved a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art from Sheffield Hallam University, U.K. Robyn has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has work in private collections in the U.S., Canada, and U.K. Robyn currently resides in New Orleans, Louisiana, where she is a proud member of the artist-run gallery, The Front.
