David Robinson will be our Artist in Residence later this year.
David Robinson is a highly respected Vancouver mixed media artist, working in ceramic, wood, metal, and gypsum. His sculptures depict stories from the earth, from folklore and mythology; often in conversation with modern subcultures. He holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, is an arts educator at The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, and works from his Chinatown studio. His sculpture and installation works are exhibited in galleries in Canada and internationally. Robinson’s work is often incorporated in St. Marie Art + Design and Good Animal design group. He is currently assisting with Artist Link Leisure on this Summer 2015 installation for The Glastonbury Music Festival’s Shangri-La Interaction and Public Art Installation (http://www.shangrilaglastonbury.co.uk/)
He believes through creating and altering examples of natural beauty, he is both
exploring & envisioning the divinity of the organic world.
Robinson’s great great great grandfather was the noted explorer and aristocrat John Fall Allison, of Allison’s Pass, British Columbia. He was the first European settler in the area and the founder of Vermillian Bluffs, which later became the town of Princeton, BC. Around 1920, John Falls son, the youngest of fourteen children, Alfred Stratton Allison took this white-tailed deer down, while hunting with his brothers, near the Similkameen Valley River. The rack was mounted at the Princeton Homestead, where it had remained as a prized family heirloom for almost a Century.
The sculpture was recreated from a 15 piece plaster mould, which was constructed over two years. Robinson was very enthusiastic to work with this treasured family artefact. Honoured to beautify this iconic animal form by: “altering, queering and exhibiting the work with exaltation and representation of fragile beauty”.

If all art is in some way a reaction, then the pursuit of beauty is my reaction to the world around me. Where nature is at its most memorable, I draw inspiration from it. In response to the bland or ugly, I react by wanting to create something beautiful.Beauty calls us to itself. It halts us in our daily routine and just for a moment all distractions, all opinions, are silenced—beauty becomes the unifier.
I enjoy the process of creation, be it my own artwork or someone else’s vision. Working with customers to get their ideas into production has always been a big part of my working life—from the traditional large pottery companies in my native city of Stoke-on-Trent, England, to creative entrepreneurs from Europe and North America.
With over 20 years’ experience in the making of pottery I have been part of some challenging and exciting work, including modelling a figurative clock presented to Her Majesty the Queen. Every new idea a client brings into my studio here in Vancouver, BC is the start of a great creative journey.

A weekend visit by a favourite writer has brought us this beautiful haiku:
Fire crackles at night
filling a small cabin with
the stories of trees.
