Robin Maria Pedrero, the 2015 100% Pure Florida Judge

 

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is excited to announce that Robin Maria Pedrero, of Longwood, Florida will be this year’s awards judge for 100% Pure Florida Juried Exhibition.

Robin Maria Pedrero paints the spirit and energy of life in rhythmic layers of color. Her vibrant poetic work combines natural and imaginary elements.  She responds to what catches her eyes and heart personifying nature.  “I use a symbolic visual language exploring both the visible and invisible creating a commentary on relationships and thoughts. As I work the images can be unexpected flowing from gathered memories. Music plays a role in my process and seeps into my art.  I build layers making connections and a story comes forth and unfolds. The work evolves, and quite often by the time the painting is finished it has a history of stories interwoven in the layers.”

 

Born in Connecticut in 1964, Pedrero is an award winning artist with work in museum permanent collections, in film and collected worldwide. She enjoys to map the countries where her work has been collected; America, Great Britain, Bahrain, Italy, Spain, Scotland, Canada, Mexico, Denmark, Australia and New Zealand. She is an elected signature member of the Pastel Society of America. Pedrero creates from her Florida studio and is awarded Best Artist in Florida 2012 by Baterbys Art Auction Gallery, listed in Florida International Magazine’s Florida Artists Hall of Fame and the featured solo artist in September 2015 at the Lake Eustis Museum of Art in Florida. Pedrero works from her home studio in Longwood Florida, enjoying the company of her dog Max A. Million.
