Tapestry | Seattle Deconstructed Art Fair
August 5 - 28, 2021
Achieving warmth and softness with unforgiving stone, Robinson breathes life into each of his pieces, revealing the innate qualities of the natural medium he works with. His sculptures are as much about discovery as they are reflections of the artist’s intuition.
Finding boulders and slabs across the Pacific Northwest is the beginning of his artistic process. From the exterior it is often impossible to determine the characteristics and mineral properties within each stone. It is only after he has begun to carve through each piece that he discovers intricacies and attributes to highlight through sculptural form. Within his newest body of work, Robinson weaves a diverse array of sculptures together through the common thread of his pursuit of beauty.
