"A room without books is like a body without a soul."
- Marcus Tullius Cicero
Robin Rezende presents her unique vision through books as well as through visual art. To date, Robin has designed and published four books, with several more in the works. She is available for commissions of personalized books, either histories of your family and ancestors, or books with personal meaning to you. Placed in your home or work space, these books are powerful vehicles for change.
Her first book, Writing on Stones, takes a visual look at the aesthetics of "emptiness". She says, "The images in this book came effortlessly, born out of the darkness of a nighttime drive on an empty, desolate stretch of back road."
Robin understands the book as a work of art in its own right, saying, "Books in themselves, as founts of both knowledge and beauty, have their own unique sense of space and grace."
In The Darling Object of My Heart, Robin gives us a visual love letter to her adopted home, Crawfordsburn House - one of the Irish "Big Houses" built in the early 1900s. Robin shows us in photographs what she means when she says, "The things we love are made up of a million tiny moments in time."
With Sensing Sacred, Robin explores working with nature to make sacred art, asking the question, "Can we see silence, can we hear light?"
