Stephanie Robison

Medium: Fiber
Residency: May 1, 2021–
July 31, 2021

The sculpture of Stephanie Robison plays with multiple oppositional relationships. Working with industrial fabrics and wood, she creates large-scale installations that examine relationships between culture, nature, and the built environment. Her latest series of work combines traditional stone carving and the process of needle felting wool. By merging incongruous materials such as wool and marble, she works to synthesize and fuse: organic and geometric, natural and architectural, handmade and the uniform industrial. Focusing on materiality and color with this new work, Robison creates charming, often humorous or awkward forms referencing aspects of the body, relationships, and the environment. While in residence at HCCC, Robison plans to expand her current body of work by gaining material knowledge through further exploration into needle felting and stone carving.

Originally from Oregon, Robison currently resides in California, where she teaches sculpture at the City College of San Francisco and serves as educational director for the California Sculptors Symposium. Robison holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Marylhurst University and a Master of Fine Arts in sculpture from the University of Oregon. Her work has been exhibited at Whatcom Museum and Tacoma Art Museum in Washington; Marin Museum of Contemporary Art and Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in California; Peter Robertson Gallery in Alberta, Canada; Yeiser Art Center in Kentucky; and Site:Brooklyn Gallery in New York.
