Robbie Steinbach



Liberation is something that all of us may be wishing for right now:  freedom from illness, divisive politics, irrefutable evidence of climate change.   We are even wishing for liberation, at least temporarily, from our homes.  So, I have created a small doll springing forth from her cozy, wall-papered cube out into nature.  The box has an eye trapped at the bottom, warily watching her escape.  Outside, trees, plants, water, stones, and the sun offer consolation and perspective.

Materials: Solar etchings on paper, embroidery yarn, purchased doll and sequin heart

Price: $200 – SOLD – for purchase of other works, be in touch with artist: or 575-770-2569
