About This Event
WPG is pleased to present this Press Room exhibition by member Eric COGu Robinson. Eric tells us: "I make a lot of prints. Many of them are good. A few are great. Quite a few are not that good. I throw some of them away. Some, however, I crop and use collectively as members of a greater whole."
Calling this process "Aggregate Art," Eric compares it to the age-old tradition of quiltmaking, collage, and the processes of Picasso or Rauschenberg. Viewers are invited to add their own layer of interpretation to this Aggregate Art by choosing their favorites and studying how those choices and prints interact.
Eric COGu Robinson lives in Iowa. He received his MFA from Iowa State University, and has had solo exhibitions across the mid-west and has been represented in group exhibitions nationwide, including 20/20 Vision at Firehouse Gallery-Louisville, PA, 2009; and Prolific Impressions, Printmaking Now- climate/gallery LLC, Long Island City, NY. In addition to his own art, he has taught multiple classes and workshops as well as attained many technical achievements, including designing and fabricating a hydraulic press for various printmaking processes, creating a registration system for large-scale printmaking, and making general improvements to the ISU printmaking studios.
