Peel back the layers in the images and titles of Nadine Robbins oil paintings to find multiple meanings (double entendre) of subtle erotic humor–a theme that she carries thought out her work.

Nadine  grew up in France, (with a mother who was an artist) and attended an impressive array of fine art schools.  Nadine’s work has twice been featured in the prestigious Royal Society of Portrait Painters show in London.

Her portrait The Golden Gown, while on display at the Brill Gallery, was hailed by art critic Keith Shaw as  “the best nude oil painting I’ve seen in the Berkshires outside The Clark [Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute]. Critic Shaw went on to say that, ”Nadine Robbins is developing into a superb figure painter, and her double portrait, The Golden Gown, is an American masterpiece, both technically and artistically.”

Nadine’s reach also extends to Chicago, where renowned collector Howard Tullman has added her portrait “Moxie” to his impressive array of nudes.

Nadine Robbin’s work will hang in the exhibition Fixation 2014, curated by Sergio Gomez & Didi Menendeza show in a Chicago gallery that will focus on physical or psychological obsessions with objects or subjects.
