Colette Robbins' works are reflections on the psychology of space and its ability to hold vestiges of memory and relationships. Her recent project entitled the 'Head Exchange' transforms the immaterial nature of relationships into something as solid and permanent as a stone relic. The works in the series depict intricately drawn landscapes from around the world and ghostly historic rooms, all which contain stone heads of people at varying ages. These ominous and epic scenes engage notions of tragic histories and survival and leave the viewer to piece together their uncanny story.
