CURRENT: Metalwork and Drawings by Robin Croft

Robin Croft is an inventive and exceptionally gifted mid-career artist whose metalwork sculptures and ink drawings reflect the general sense of insecurity that has affected the lives of millions of middle class Americans since 9/11 and the economic crisis of 2008. Trained as a painter and graphic artist, Croft now works as a maintenance man in an assisted living facility in Virginia--- the inspiration for a remarkable series of drawings depicting life aboard the metaphorical Eldership, an imaginary vessel which serves as a narrative and pictorial platform for Croft's personal observations and his art. Also on display through May 31st are Croft’s Fragment series assemblages, visually and emotionally arresting reflections on the the country's heightened vulnerability since 9/11. This is Croft's first one man show in a commercial gallery.
