About the Event
"Who controls culture and what is the effect on society and individuals? Multimedia sculptor and conceptual artist Philip A. Robinson Jr. raises these questions and more in his exhibit titled, “Old Talks with New Icons” on display July 1-30 at Art at the Cave.
Robinson’s exploration of identity involves careful selection of wood, noting its history, symbolism, and age. Through much planning, crafting, building, and composing, Robinson creates larger-than-life wood sculptures, often mounted to mirrors that engage the viewer in a reflective dialog that references power paradigms, identity, value, culture, ethnicity, and marketing.
From his artist statement: “Through a thoughtful selection of materials and the science of dendrochronology... his work accentuates aesthetic and historic patterns between self and the world, with socio-political undertones.”
The exhibit runs from July 1 through 30 and includes an artist reception on First Friday, July 1 from 4-8 and an artist talk on Saturday, July 16 at 1 pm. The gallery is always free to visit and there is no charge for gallery-hosted events.
