Robbin Deyo

Born and raised in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Robbin Deyo now lives and works in Montreal. She is known for her geometric drawings, paintings and videos that explore in-depth the visual world of mathematical curves, hypotrochoids and epitrochoids. Her use of colour and 2-dimensional surface in her paintings, clearly situate her work on the foundation of geometric abstraction initiated by Les Plasticiens. Deyo completed her BFA at Vancouver’s Emily Carr University of Art & Design and received her MFA from Concordia University, Montreal. Her work has been presented in exhibitions across Canada, in the United States, and Europe. Canadian solo exhibitions include Still Moving (Ottawa Art Gallery, ON), Spin (Truck Gallery, AB), Imaging the invisible (Axeneo7), Flow (La Chambre Blanche) and Sweet Sensation (Southern Alberta Art Gallery). Group exhibitions include, Manif d’art : la Biennale de Québec (Musée national des Beaux-Arts du Québec), Op! L’art optique (Maison des arts de Laval), Les Matins infidèles. L’art du protocole (Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec), Urban Sculptures, Specific Objects (Charles H. Scott Gallery, BC).
