Magical realism, beauty and love of color, Robyn Thompson Duong’s work evokes pride in black culture and the spirit of femininity. Drawing inspiration from art history, Robyn’s work deals with challenging the societal perceptions and stereotypes of Black femininity and beauty by depicting women of color as Mother Goddess, grand, graceful, and beautiful. Thompson Duong’s work seeks to reappropriate the Black female image and what it means to be a woman of color.
Primarily a figurative artist, Robyn Thompson Duong works in acrylics and graphite. As a black woman raised in the suburbs of Boston and often being the only person of color growing up, Thompson Duong knows the importance of representation and seeing one’s self in the images and people around you, hence her work depicting women of color as the main subjects of her paintings.
