Robin Dluzen was born and raised in Southeast Michigan. In 2008, she received a BFA in Fine Arts and Literature from Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan, before coming to Chicago to pursue a graduate degree. In 2010, Dluzen received an MFA in Painting and Drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She currently maintains a studio practice in the city of Chicago, exhibiting at venues throughout the city and the Midwest. Formerly the Editor-in-Chief and Senior Art Critic at Chicago Art Magazine, Dluzen is now a Chicago critic contributing to Art Ltd. Magazine, Visual Art Source, and Art F City.
Caulk, wire, tape, and cardboard are just a few of the materials Robin Dluzen uses to create her work. The pieces depict factory buildings with smoke stacks, electrical towers, and hardware used in construction. The familiarity of the media and her laborious process conceptually tie the work to the Midwest and pay a beautiful homage to the honest labor of the working people of Michigan.
Robin’s work will be at Morton College from November 4th through December 14th. Building C, First floor, across from the bookstore.
Morton College. 3801 S Central Ave. Cicero, IL 60804
