Walter Robinson – Ecstasy
Dimensions: 20.25 x 20.25 x 1″
Medium: MDF, epoxy, metal flake
Walter Robinson often uses words to make a simple pop statement in his works. The glittery surface and candy colors in his Ecstasy series glamorize the happy drug, promising a better mental state and uplifted mood, by using a tiny pill. This work is a critique of pop culture and how it can make bad ideas like taking drugs seem attractive, while in reality the ecstasy we seek can be found in visceral experiences of true beauty, as we find in nature and in art.
