Newzones Gallery of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce Maquettes and Lesser Digressions, an exhibition featuring new sculptures by Canadian artist David Robinson.
The sculptor's maquette is the final work of art in embryo; it is the artist's earliest inquiries into an idea as it lies as yet unrevealed. The sculptural artefacts yielded by this germinal contemplation reveal core elements of creative thought and process.
David Robinson's sculptures range from intimate to overwhelming in size, demonstrating a great command of media and skill as a figurative artist. Robinson's sculptures juxtapose themselves in urban architectural settings, demonstrating a modernistic approach to a very classical domain in art -- the male nude.
This gallery exhibition of maquettes by sculptor David Robinson illuminates facets of the creative process that are otherwise the sole purview of the working studio.
Born in Toronto, Ontario in 1964, David Robinson received his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Ontario College of Art in 1987. Since then, David Robinson has exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions throughout North America. His work can be found in many public and private collections across Canada.
