With Rachel, an homage to Jan Vermeer's Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window, Robinson stages the insularity and studied politeness of the middle-class. Standing at the culminating point of sunlight Rachel's gaze tells of promise and a cloying sense of comfort. The private subject epitomizes the mis en scène of classic portraiture. Oozing with the complacency this work stands as a textural parody of the predominating bourgeois ideals by which success and quality of life are apparently measured.
