Walter Robinson

 

A Solo Exhibition of the Work of Walter Robinson

September 29 – November 12

Walter Robinson presents subjects that are objects of desire — romance, alcohol, fashion, fast food, piles of cash — in a style that bears influence to both Pop Art as well as the Pictures Generation, which refers to a group of contemporary artists who appropriate images in their artwork as a way to explore culture, consumerism, and society. He examines facets of consumer and pop culture in a serial fashion by exploring a subject repeatedly. This both mimics the mass production of the objects as well as their inherent accessibility. Robinson does not just paint a hamburger. He paints a McDonald’s Jalapeno Double, a White Castle Double, and Carl’s Jr. Super Bacon Cheeseburger. Robinson selects subjects that are identifiable, recognizable, and well-known products for consumption. By doing so he explores the relationship between consumerism, universality, and desire.
