these paintings were created to stay together and sold together.

These paintings beside each other have shared color palettes yet different tones and textures. Two separate perspectives from the same moment, in harmony with each other. The yarn is intended to represent the core beliefs that impact highlighting different moments of the same memory. Some sentences from conversations impact you deeper than others. Supporting texture is more prominent than others in the memory. Growing real understanding of what is most important to each party, learning each other’s interpretation of what makes for a meaningful memory. I've been working on these paintings for 3+ months and they are close to my heart. Each stitch, brush stroke, and contrasting detail (memory) has been placed for a reason.

I used to think the deepest way of connecting was through shared experiences, yet humans experience and interpret moments so differently. Sometimes the way we interpret situations, conversations, and interactions can divide rather than connect relationships. I love learning how my loved ones interpret situations, even if it is sometimes uncomfortable. Especially if actions I’ve taken are in question.

This past year, humans have been challenged collectively on personal levels that I haven’t yet experienced in adulthood. Moral principles and core beliefs blurring into politics. Decisions and opinions about huge life-altering events can be interpreted in a multitude of different ways. Opinions are made regarding an experience someone’s never had. Opinions are formed because of watching someone walk through an event without knowing EXACTLY how it can impact their outlook on life. It’s hard to not let emotions blur your empathy and compassion toward others’ opinions when the stakes have been so high.

The most interesting conflicting perspective is siblings growing up in the same household. The shared bond of walking through experiences together, having seen and felt things that no one else has, together, is a bond, unlike other bonds. Yet, some memories can be digested so differently that the pain felt from discrediting a monumental moment in your own story can be devastating. Questioning if you blew a statement out of proportion, or if the entire memory was conflicting with reality. Similarities in shared moments, and different takes on what happened without explaining why/how you came to that conclusion are the cause of most divides in relationships. In the same sense, it can allow for a different perspective of a moment that may have been haunting you for years, and vice versa. Which can be healing in a way you may have not known you needed.

There were moments this summer when I had conversations about core memories, I held dear to my heart, yet they weren’t remembered the same way. I’ve also had to set extremely hard boundaries because of events that weren’t remembered the same way. The thing is, sometimes people can truly have a different memory or perspective and that is their VALID reality. It isn’t yours. Others can deny what happened or the role they had in the situation because it would force them to look at themselves and they may not be ready.

My healing journey has required processing events that have shaped how I perceive life and myself. The more I kept relationships around me that forced me to change memories I clearly have in my head to better suit their own denial, the more I felt my sanity slipping away. I processed my experience with this person, and it wasn’t received well. Your experience CAN BE DENIED, and it CAN STILL BE TRUE TO YOU. I had to learn and cope with the reality that I didn’t need that validation, or that huge apology or pledge of trying something different.

I’ve also been on the other side of the table. I’ve had friendships end in which I truly hurt some of the most important people I’ll ever meet, and I can deeply empathize with how terribly I hurt them. At first, I had a completely different experience, reacting out of fear of rejection/abandonment MY OWN BELIEFS, nothing to do with them. Sometimes empathy isn’t enough, the damage is caused, and our perspectives of a situation can simply not be able to shift no matter how much that relationship meant to us. I’ve had to accept that I was the good guy in some stories and the bad guy in others. Accepting that has been so freeing, and it allowed closure in relationships where there was no use in replaying the tape over and over.

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned this year is that I can be open to other perspectives without discounting my own. Shared experiences sometimes are not shared at all. Others are connected, divine, and not forced. Those are memories I want to keep creating. Without ignoring the knowledge that even in the moments you are trying your hardest to be kind, real, and present; you can never control the perspective of others. Quickly talking about how you perceived a situation to be negative is the only way I want to live. To be open, curious, and empathetic to other people’s opinions, views, and life lessons. Processing how you see a certain situation can save relationships can prevent some really damaging resentments, and in my relationships today it’s one of the deepest acts of love.

handcrafted paintings blurring the lines between art, poetry, and sculpture.

Visceral home is a husband and wife team who work together to create viscerally evoking art by hand. Connor Robinson builds each canvas that his wife Taylor Robinson (Redler) unfolds her artistic vision upon. Connor finishes each project by housing the painting in a hand crafted frame using a wide variety of wood species and woodworking techniques to best honor the work.

Inspired by their personal healing journey, they artistically transmute trauma into art intended for therapeutic release/relief for your space. Taylor is most influenced to paint using earth tones, and minerals found in nature, highlighting the natural healing beauty of the color palettes found outdoors. Using art to provoke conversation they have a mission to illustrate vulnerability, aiming to cultivate positive change in the stigma revolving mental health. Taylor and Connor Robinson use a variety of natural and unnatural materials to story-tell within their works; pairing plaster with rock pigment, wood with hand-spun yarn, healing crystals with oil, rust and stone+sand with concrete. They are consistently expanding and evolving their technique, process, style, and concepts. Each piece is entirely their own meaningful entity, paired with a biography putting their creative concepts into words.

With a deep love of interior design and architecture, they find themselves constantly inspired by conceptual spaces that merge together raw, textured, nature influenced organic concepts with accents that outlast fast design trends in this new social media era. They often consider industrial modernism and organic soft scandinavian + asian influences while planning art projects.

Despite the many directions their creative innovations may go, they try to stay focused in their mission of illustrating euphemisms conveyed through their textural work. Keeping in mind the spaces their art lands will continue to morph into new personalities, they focus on creating art that can be everlasting through many design changes.
