press release

A solo show by the artist Andrew Robinson, will open at Eyelevel Gallery hosted in the Victor Osborne Atelier Friday, October 3rd. Curated by Gabriela Alva, the show will feature all new work from Robinson, whose 20 year plus history in ceramic arts leads the show, mingling with painting, sculpture and installation. As the title infers, crimes, or imperfect histories, are explored through sculptural multimedia portraits and objects that serve to suggest secretive narratives that are begging to be discovered.

Simultaneously playful and meticulously crafted, the ceramic forms that adorn painted portraits or stand alone provoke humor, forgotten folklore, and always a reference to process. Robinson says that much like the tradition of the craftsmanship he was schooled in, material texture informs the objects which informs the feeling of his work, ranging from poetic, humorous, jarring, and at times cryptic.

Apart from producing work as an independent visual artist Andrew Robinson is also an adjunct professor at Parsons School of Design.
