Windward Calm has been installed, thanks to the support of Gordon and Leslie Diamond, at VGH. We're thrilled to have had the opportunity to undertake this project which was inspired by David's own experiences at the Diamond Centre after heart surgery. We hope you'll visit, and we have a request. Please respect the privacy of the patients and staff there as you observe the artwork. We love that you want to take and share photos, but please don't post any that identify the people who are there at a difficult moment in their lives. With sincere thanks, the team at Robinson Studios. 🙏

Reflections on the River, the first public art commissioned by the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, is now fully installed. We were honoured and moved by yesterday's celebration ceremony, and inspired by the incredible Fort Mac folks who have worked tirelessly over the last five years to make this happen.

We're thrilled to have worked with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo to create and install their first piece of public art. David's design was selected through a rigorous public engagement process. The design, Reflections on the River, features a life-sized bronze figure, 20,000 lbs of weathering steel plate and projected lighting effects. The final site work is still underway but we'll be sharing more photos in the coming weeks.

"The sculptural figure broadcasts its visual aesthetic at a broadly accessible bandwidth; it speaks across boundaries of age and culture; it withstands the shifting moment, while marking the path in a flow of continuous change." -DR⠀

Mythic Atlas,⠀
on whose grave endurance has rested⠀
the weight of the world.⠀
Beneath this new world the sinew of the old hero goes slack.⠀
The titan shrinks from the task,⠀
now loth to endure the unbearable lightness⠀
of the terrestrial body in question.⠀

"My own conception of and affinity for this work is the way it troubles two polarized aesthetic orthodoxies; namely those of abstract minimalism and figuration.⠀

To the eyes of generations raised on the Corten and stainless-steel sculptural offerings of Richard Serra, David Smith, and their aesthetic descendants, ‘the figure’ appears alien to ‘the sculpture’. Representation, we forget, was the thing, pattern and archetype, from which we first set out to make abstractions. What, after all, are those massive tectonic forms without we ourselves, to walk bodily among them, selflessly lending context and thus meaning to their mere grandeur?⠀

And this work Critical Mass assumes no clear winner to the contest; neither the bronze ‘heroic’ figure nor its abstracted and toppling Corten fellows can attain any solid footing; all is at stake; all is in flux.⠀

Far from disaster, we may choose instead to read this as the collapse of a stifling impasse – a remediation of lost ground: When figuration per se lies chronically exhausted in a heap of its own recurring affectations, and abstraction per se has run its course to the point of utter negation, there is very little by way of solid footing left for the sculptor to navigate. My work in general, and in this instance in particular, has been to test and try to discern if there may not be some toehold still available; some available ground left, upon which to stand."⠀
