Robin Cone-Murakami

As the daughter of an architect from the island of Oahu and a librarian from southern Oregon, I have spent most of my life split between two lands. I grew up in Honolulu - a city expanding within a complex island ecosystem. Place and past are central to my artwork, which investigates the changing landscape our world faces in contemporary society and the growing disconnect between ourselves, our land, and our community. My work has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout Oregon including McMinnville, Ashland, and Portland. In 2018, I was a resident artist at Leland Ironworks in Oregon City, Oregon.
