Walter Robinson

Walter Robinson is a California sculptor whose funny, unsettling conceptual objects and installations focus on language and culture.  Working in a range of materials— wood, epoxy, metal, and found objects— he hand-fabricates and assembles commentaries about politics, advertising, identity and desire.  Using text and the strategies of appropriation, conflation, and dislocation, he investigates the subconscious human imperatives hidden beneath political, religious, and capitalist packaging. 

Robinson is a graduate of Lone Mountain College in San Francisco, California, where he now lives and works.  He is represented by Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco, Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles and Galerie Nordine Zidoun in Luxembourg.  His work is in the collections of San Jose Museum of Art, Sheldon Museum, Djerassi Foundation, Di Rosa Foundation, Warner Brothers Music, as well as many private collections around the world.
