About the Book
Simultaneously serious and humorous the work of Andrew Cornell Robinson encompasses drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, fashion, photography, music, and collaboration as performance through process. Each element is connected by the abstraction and distortion of a re-imagined narrative that he creates images and artifacts for and about. Flying in the face of traditional craft, Robinson’s ceramics are distorted objects; from pottery to weapons, and uniforms, to improbable things. He explores thematically controversial themes including the inner life of revolutionaries, aristocratic entitlement, agitprop, and sexuality. Robinson's work tackles contrast and inner conflicts such as guilt and innocence, transgression and hypocrisy, privilege and terror, violence, sexuality, revolution and humor. This monograph offers a series of essays and a poem by Steve Turtell presented as a manifesto; revealing intriguing insights into the world that Andrew creates in drawings, printmaking, costume, photography, sculpture and ceramics.
