Robyn's practice has evolved out of many years exploring harakeke, as an ecologically sound and culturally rich material for art making, and an interest in contemporary dance.
Robyn's practice dates back about a decade. Robyn is very interested in scale, using her own body as a measure. She is also interested in creating a sort of feminine alternative to traditional sculptural practice and processes, preferring lightness, tying, and binding, and using applied weight/tension to create rigidity with flexible materials. The connection with dance developed out of a desire to create movement within the harakeke forms, using human bodies instead of machines to animate forms.
