New Works by Sculptor David Robinson

Sat, 2003-11-29

In this exhibition of seven new works, David Robinson has enlarged and reworked earlier maquettes such as Device and Desire, Font, and Arc into more fully realized versions. Remaining true to their inspired maquettes, these works command a powerful presence and impact at their new scale.

Binary Vision

David's latest work, was recently scaled up to this life-size version from a 23" plaster maquette designed for a new home in Vancouver's Coal Harbour. Confronted with the spatial and material problem of an entire wall of mirror glass incorporating a 180 degree view of the city, this figure uses the mirror's doubling effect to singular advantage. Standing astride the line between real and illusory space, the figure coheres in the mind upon contact with its own reflection. Gazing at this piece which itself appears to scan the horizon, one is both drawn into its illusion and compelled by its redirection.
