Andrew C Robinson
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick


Andrew Cornell Robinson's work includes ceramics, mixed media sculpture and work on paper that often bridges eccentric content with craft and assemblage materials. Using industrial design personae and other narrative strategies, Robinson creates works that explore revisionist histories through the production of art and craft objects. He employs an interdisciplinary approach to media and making; primarily creating ceramic sculptures and works on paper with an array of media and methods including mixed media sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking and performance.

He works under the auspices of the arts and crafts research studio; a multidisciplinary workshop where he develops independent and collaborative projects with curators, designers and artisans and an interdisciplinary group of makers.

Robinson received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York City, and he studied ceramics at the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland, and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, where he received a BFA in ceramics. He lives and works in New York City and is a member of the faculty at Parsons School of Design.
