Growing up in the rural south contributed significantly to David’s role as an artist, as well as to the themes he currently explores in his work. The emotive and contemplative ceramic sculptures of David C. Robinson study the myths and prejudices of the rural south to bring age-old iconography into contemporary examination.
“There is something almost mythical about the deep south that is every bit as dark, powerful and timeless as a Greek tragedy or a Shakespearean comedy. My goal is to exploit these associations and to provide a fresh perspective of the rural south” - David C. Robinson
Originally from Mississippi, Robinson currently works outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
