Artist Profile

Bruce
Robinson

Visual artist Bruce Robinson creates assemblages and plywood paintings that are figurative or abstract, inspired by people, specific histories, music, and dance. His work explores forms of movement while it blurs the lines between drawing, painting, and sculpture. Robinson is Professor Emeritus at the Columbus College of Art and Design, where he taught for 32 years. A recipient of the Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award, Robinson received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and his MFA from Indiana University. His assemblages were recently part of Contemporary Art Matters 2021 group exhibition Sculpture I, and in 2020 we featured Robinson’s work in a solo exhibition Forerunners. His most recent solo exhibition Flutterby was shown at the Pizzuti Collection of the Columbus Museum of Art in 2021.
