Local and established artist, Robin Annette Jordan is joining efforts with PCAF during the month of March to bring attention to National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness through her exhibition, “She”. Robin, a strong collaborator with PCAF, has previously offered her artwork to highlight events, support groups, and fundraisers. As a self taught artist who delights in color, she relies upon her creativity and artistic skills to engage individuals, reduce stigma, and build community. A perfect fit for Women and Girls National HIV/AIDS Awareness month, Robin’s art and the exhibition “She” organically embodies identity, presence, and ownership of eloquence and strength. HIV and AIDS are still widespread public health issues, and women remain particularly impacted by the virus, especially women of color. Today, nearly 1 in 4 people who are diagnosed with HIV are women. Robin’s work challenges us to move towards improving the well being of women through policy, education, and innovative programs.
Robin’s artwork includes themes of black women and girls–clothed in deeply-hued attire, captured in vivid, radiant movement, and faceless. Her acrylic paintings fairly sing with celebration, and honor the people and places she has experienced. The facelessness of her figures adds a narrative of inclusion, inviting us to lean in and witness ourselves in her paintings.
