Creating fine art with the aid of the computer has allowed me to be more open and creative with my ideas and style. I don’t necessarily use the computer to complete each work, but when used even partially as a tool, my creativity seems to flow more naturally and easily.

I grew up in Columbus, Indiana, a small Midwestern city with a unique architectural landscape. My experience on an indoor playscape I frequented as a child, designed by Cesar Peli in the 1970’s, instilled in me a strong aesthetic sensibility from a young age. His playscape featured green-carpeted hills, bulbous plastic and primary colored forms. Little did I know that as my little body rambunctiously meandered through the space I would one day bring that same playful and open ended attitude into my art making practice.

I am inspired by the memories I associate with my identity, the effects of emotional labor, and the associated stereotypes. I use unique forms of storytelling to share concepts rooted in my own life. Each piece is a reflection of these experiences, and that of others. We can all relate to wearing masks to achieve the accepted standard within our own combination of subgroups. Growing up semi-isolated did not make me exempt from being implanted with habitual patterns, but it did allow time for me to develop an uncommon perspective.

Robinson focuses his studio production around the idea of furniture as a vehicle of expression. He has continually sought ways to make his studio production reflect an interest in functional forms that speak with an artist’s sensibility. The collective work shifts in series that represent different material explorations, form investigations, narrative qualities of art making against the formal vocabulary of design, and then back again to the simplicity of functional objects. Robinson is interested in the relationship the artist and designer both have in shaping an individual’s experience and emotive response to objects of daily ritual.

I am driven by a passion for problem solving and finding creative solutions. I studied fine art at Ivy Tech and completed both the Sculpture and Furniture Design programs at Herron School of Art and Design. I work primarily in wood and steel to create unique and imaginative pieces of art and furniture.

I was born a maker…I don’t see things for what they are, but for what they can become. I can see the last paint stroke in my painting or the last chip of stone fall from the sculpture before it has even begun. I never stop being curious about things. I don’t mind not having formal training…this way I don’t know my limitations and I won’t worry about riding the edge.
