Artist and Advocate, Amber Robles-Gordon, mixed-media creations are visual representations of her hybridism: a fusion of her gender, ethnicity cultural, and social experiences. Known for recontextualizing non-traditional materials, her assemblages, large sculptures, installations, and public artwork, emphasize the essentialness of spirituality and temporality within life.
Robles-Gordon has over fifteen years of exhibiting, art education, and exhibition coordinating experience. She received a Bachelor of Science, Business Administration in 2005 at Trinity University, and subsequently a Master’s in Fine Arts (Painting) in 2011 from Howard University, Washington, DC. She has exhibited nationally and in Germany, Italy, Malaysia, London, and Spain. Robles-Gordon is proficient in American Sign-Language and has traveled throughout the US, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, Northern Africa, and Southeast Asia.
In the Summer 2020, Robles-Gordon was featured in the first online solo exhibition, Place of Breath and Birth, at Galleria de Arte, Universidad del Sagrado Corazón, (Sacred Heart University), in her birthplace of San Juan, Puerto Rico, (PR). This will be followed by a fall 2021, solo exhibition, Secession, at American University, Katzen Art Center.
Presented as part of the Mount Holyoke College Gender Studies Black Feminisms Speaker Series and Studio Art Visiting Artist Series.
