STANCHION. 2008
Edition 1/6
Bronze, steel and cement
38 x 11.5 x 9.5”

Robinson’s striking sculptures incorporate a variety of materials ranging from traditional bronze, iron, steel and silver to polymer-gypsum, cement and hydrostone. While his work is primarily figurative, he often adds psychological and mythological twists to his subjects through the use of cables and strings, which both connect and dissociate his figures from their environment and further describe the inherent tension that exists between things.

BINARY VISION, 2003
Edition 1/6
Concrete, glass and steel
86 x 11.5 x 9.5”

Robinson’s work plays with dichotomies such as gravity and flight; religion and secularism; individuality and mass culture; yet through his artistry he is able to bridge these massive discordances into single poetic gestures. Robinson says, “It seems to me that my sculptures, before they are anything else, are manifestations of fitful waking dreams; narratives whole and smashed, images, ideas, all distilled through the passage of time and the particular resistance of matter.” Robinson has a deep reverence for imagery and symbolism, and this, combined with his remarkable skill allows the viewer to participate in the allegorical through contemporary form.
