There are an estimated 35 to 45 in-progress collage works surrounding artist Robyn Sean Peterson in his home studio. Most of them are stacked upright and leaning against a wall.
There are nearly a dozen pieces in varying sizes — intricate, colorful, mesmerizing — that lie across a U-ish shape of rectangular tables. Beneath them the space is filled with stacks of boxes filled with scraps of source material.
Robyn, 68, earned degrees in Comparative Religion (B.A.) and Psychology (M.A.). Then, on a San Francisco street corner in the 1980s, his intuition pointed him on a new path.
Into art and dimensions beyond.
And, ultimately, into a humble profession that provided conflicting measures of financial stability and struggle but enabled him to continue what mattered most.
When Robyn talked with Humanitou, he shared insights on the intuitive stream that guides his art and the function of art in culture. He talked about manifesting one’s purpose, and an explanation of art’s “trinity of potentials.”
