Wish, 2005

Edition: 15 + 2APs
Size: 28" x 36"
Medium: C-Type
Year: 2003-2007

Photographed over the course of five winters, the landscapes in Snowbound are pristine in their sparse whiteness. The minimalist compositions have a meditative quality that causes the spectator to be drawn into the perfected white-on-white. They exude a neutrality of tone in which the ground recedes into the sky, mirroring the envelopment of human presence by the binding snowfall. Accents of color are signs that betray the empty loneliness; they prick through the whiteness, at times with a surreal incongruity. As quiet observations of our human condition, these metaphorical studies perceptively capture notions of transience, loss and enlightenment. 

The critically acclaimed series was published as a monograph by Kehrer Verlag in 2007, and the photographs went on to be exhibited across numerous venues in the US and internationally. 

Lisa M. Robinson graduated cum laude from Columbia University and received her MFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. She has won several awards including a Fullbright Grant, was an Evelyn Stefansson Nef Fellow at the MacDowell Colony and an artist-in-residence at the Pouch Cove Foundation in Newfoundland. Her work is represented in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Museum of Photographic Arts (San Diego), Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Fidelity Investments amongst others.

At the AIPAD Photography show, two Artist Proofs of Wish and Solo are presented for sale. With the edition of these two artworks now sold out, these photographs are the last available to acquire.
