Wall Painting (Night), 2008
Bruce Robbins
acrylic, resin on jute on panel
84 x 84 in.

I was drawn to Robbins work (discovered in a current catalog at work) by its construction and color. His earlier work focuses on actual physical construction of works from pieces of walls to form a new grid. He later on ventured into creating these construction through a painting process. Buildings are still his primary subject matter. The dimension in the work cannot be scene in this digital image, but consider the materials used, acrylic, resin and jute, with resin becoming glossy and thick, and jute potentially adding texture to the work.

Check out the full range of this artist's work, each area of creation and production informing the other.
