Sculptor David Robinson has been a force in the Canadian art scene for the last 25 years. Based in Vancouver, he is known for his conceptually and physically complex works that are outstanding contemporary examples of a type of humanist realism that engages with fundamental, often spiritual questions of the experience and meaning of being. His sculptures do this through a few central premises; the universal human, our interaction with the physical world and the exploration of metaphysical ideas and their expression in form.
And he’s looking forward to seeing his art featured at Liquidity Wines this summer, too. David will talk about his pieces showcased at Liquidity Aug. 17 at 3 pm in the Premium Tasting Lounge.
“I’m delighted to be showing at Liquidity this year,” David says. “It’s always meaningful to see the artwork in a new environment, and Liquidity’s Ian MacDonald has done a brilliant job cultivating a beautiful setting for the sculpture.”
Robinson has produced numerous solo shows, and participated in many group exhibits nationally and internationally. His sculptures have been commissioned by such clients as Polygon Homes, the Four Seasons Hotel Resort in Whistler, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, and Century Group. His work is in many private and corporate collections including the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, Dentons Canada LLP, Painted Rock Estate Winery, Toronto Dominion Bank, and Vancouver General Hospital.
