Robinson’s work investigates the mechanics of cultural and social anthropology. Using text and the strategies of appropriation, conflation, and dislocation, he uncovers the subconscious and biological human imperatives hidden beneath social, political, religious, and capitalist packaging. Robinson’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the San Jose Museum of Art and Villa Montalvo, as well as numerous group exhibitions across the United States and abroad.
His work is included in many public and private collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Crocker Art Museum, Nevada Museum of Art, San Jose Museum of Art, the di Rosa Preserve: Art & Nature, The Sheldon Museum of Art, and the Djerassi Foundation. His work received critical attention from a number of publications including Artforum, ArtReview, Vanity Fair, and the San Francisco Chronicle. This Turner Carroll exhibition is concurrent with Walter’s paintings featured in Alcoves 16/17.2 at the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe.
