ARTIST ROBIN REPP FEATURED IN COMMUNITY FOCUS PROGRAM AT JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT

SANTA ANA, Calif. - Robin Repp, a Huntington Beach-based artist has been selected to display a collection of her work in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal as part of John Wayne Airport's (JWA) Community Focus Program. On display through May 4, her artwork can be seen on the departure (upper) level near the security screening areas and on the arrival (lower) level near baggage carousels 1 and 4.

Currently focusing on digital infrared photography to portray emotions of fear and anticipation in the landscape, Repp says "We have a conflict about the landscape. Feeling safer in groups peering out into the landscape than actually being alone in the natural setting appeals to most people . . . Questions of what is out there come to mind."

Repp began documenting and commenting on contemporary society as a student at UC Berkeley in 1969 creating protest posters from photo silk-screened images. Her body of work has evolved to include paintings, woodcuts, lithography, drawings, collages and sculptures based on photo imagery.
