Project 4 Gallery presents “In Quest of The Sun,” a solo exhibition of new work by DC artist Ellington Robinson.
To Ellington Robinson, painting is a physical, psychological, and spiritual experience, which includes a formal process and a narrative approach. By contorting and layering collected materials such as travel documents, vinyl, record sleeves, and cassette tapes, Robinson’s works evolve and embody his quest.
In his new work Robinson explores the ways by which people reach their physical and socioeconomic location. He asks: “How do we arrive at our longitude, latitude, and altitude? What determines our height, width, and depth within time zones.” Robinson recognizes that planes, trains and cars, religion, education, and labels are agents in our migration, while also acknowledging a celestial agent where the ancestors dwell in eternity and parallel universes.
