On April 3rd, 2012, The Ginger Rabbits
will discuss the topic: Creatures of Dimension
People with the creative threads never keep doing one thing their entire life.
They may learn to harness a kind of skill set, but they are curious creatures.
They must concept, develop and execute art, music, food, designs, and whatever else they dream up.
Creatives are multifaceted and tend to express themselves in various ways.
Meet the Ginger Rabbits, a Wichita art co-op, who together and individually are extremely multifaceted creatures. Come to NakedCity Gallery on April 3rd to learn about their journeys and experiences of balancing art/life/work/play, changing projects and even changing creative fields.

Linda K. Robinson’s
work explores the subversion of the codes of snapshot photography, the minimalist landscape, and their correlation to memory in reference to issues of home and domesticity. She has been working with conceptually based art within the medium of photography and inter-media, and is consistently moving her studio practice forward to coincide with the pulse of contemporary art. Robinson examines the integrity of the photograph itself as a device to document life. The impetus of her creative exploration is a conversation about home, balancing the personal inner-subjectivity of past and present. She comments on the work and play found in daily life through detailed images of places, domestic spaces and interesting aspects found in the contemporary landscape. The vintage snapshot aesthetic influences her imagery, drawing her attention to photograph the simplicity and banality of daily life and exploration, commenting on memories of traditional family. She is interested in the act of re-animating early photographs, bringing attention to the dichotomy and how specifically the process of documenting life is the mainstay which informs her work.
