Gina Lee Robbins: Overflow

Gina Lee Robbins

Slemmons Gallery

May 12, 2023 to June 24, 2023

In Overflow, Gina Lee Robbins combines found and reclaimed materials to explore the elements of human experience that we can’t quite contain. Natural debris and spillover from the urban landscape reference our inability to maintain a firm grasp on all that we’d hoped to bear. This might include the perennial lost sock, a wardrobe malfunction, or grief bubbling up at a traffic light. On a deeper level, Lee Robbins is musing on who we are in relation to who we dreamed we’d become, who we present ourselves to be, and how we’re actually seen. Her focus is the confluence of propriety and social norms with the actual spillage that occurs in everyday life–the bits that dribble out and make us uncomfortable.

RSVP for the opening reception of Overflow on Friday, May 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the link below:
