Souvenir by Walter Robinson is a tribute to the artist’s father after his death. Walter’s father served as a cryptographer in the Cold War, a fact that has played a major role in the artist’s work and career. Robinson’s art is full of visual metaphor and word play; each work is a surreal puzzle waiting to be solved. The key represents Robinson’s attempts to decipher the codes embedded in textual and visual language, as well as the secrets imparted upon him by his father.
