Second Honeymoon by Dana Robinson
April 2-May 8
Fuller Rosen Gallery is thrilled to announce Second Honeymoon, a solo exhibition of new and recent work by Dana Robinson
Robinson’s work in Second Honeymoon uses humor, color, and abstraction to transform commercial-based images into painted works on silk. Nostalgia is expertly wielded by Robinson whose work re-sculpts the past—imagery is selected from her personal collection of Ebony magazines from the 1970s and 1980s—to create contemporary visions of liberation and joy. Robinson’s process of transference creates smudged, blurry, and compressed visages of Black middle class life.
Dana Robinson (b. 1990, Brooklyn, NY, she/her/they/them) is a multidisciplinary artist raised in St. Petersburg, FL and currently based in Brooklyn, NY. She earned her BFA in Design from Florida State University in 2012 and her MFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2019. Robinson has amassed a vast body of work throughout her career, utilizing a variety of materials such as fabric, paint, vintage ephemera and other found objects to investigate questions of Blackness, womanhood and ownership.
Robinson’s work has been published in Vice, Ain’t-Bad, NY Mag’s Vulture, and It’s Nice That. Since 2008, Robinson has exhibited her work in more than 70 shows across the United States and abroad. Most recently, Robinson was exhibited in Future Fair at Selenas Mountain in Queens, NY along with the Last Supper at LatchKey Gallery in Soho. Robinson was an artist in residence at Stoneleaf Retreat in 2021 and the Wassaic Project in 2022.
Support Our Community Programs
In just over 4 years, Portland TextileX Month (PTXM) has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration, cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and intergenerational exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
This year we’ve organized the PTXM festival with over 40 events and directly sponsored a multitude of FREE programs including exhibits, workshops, artist talks, community events, and more—representing a diverse range of textile interests and practices. This year’s PTXM Regeneration Festival has brought together makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing. PTXM would not have been possible without the dedication of event organizers, paid contributors, paid interns, amazing volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community.
We hope to continue building PTXM and TextileX website as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come, and that’s where you come in.
If you feel a connection to the PTXM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider making a direct contribution programming. As a direct contributor, your funds will go directly toward programming, lean administrative expenses, and providing paid internships. We appreciate any contribution you can make and your continued support.
