Artwork Description

Robinson’s “Promise” is a commentary on the promise of human potential. As always with Robinson’s works, this work addresses the combination of profoundly personal natural materials—such as human hair in this case—and larger than life, seductive finishes to draw the viewer into the conversation. Once enveloped by the beauty of the object itself, the viewer can begin to ponder its societal, multifaceted implications.
