Spirit Compass

featuring books and works on paper by Robin Price


“Spirit Compass” features original work by Robin Price that adopts a language of color and shape to communicate the reclaiming of the creative self. Each piece is the result of many layers of production, from monoprinting to cyanotype to hand-alteration and back again, bearing in the weight of their media a lightness of palette and form. Born initially from Price’s own years-long journey of physical and emotional healing following a major concussion and an extended aftermath of post-concussion syndrome, the selection returns Price to her foundational love of process and the peace of following chanced pathways. It began as a pursuit of personal welfare, with the need to also grapple with and cure the insidious and intangible ills of childhood abuse, and transformed over the summer of 2020 into a reckoning with spiritual healing. Price’s work thus reflects an artist coming to terms with her new self; her pieces reveal a reacquaintance with a once-broken mind and a realization of the power of historical and personal recovery. In her words, “There has been amazing transcendence. There has been profound healing.”
