The Orlando Museum of Art (OMA) is proud to present a retrospective exhibition of Tony Robbin’s paintings and sculptures. Robbin’s work spans a period of forty years and reveals an artist whose focus and insight has produced an extraordinary body of work. “Tony Robbin: A Retrospective, Paintings and Drawings 1970-2010″ is on view at the museum until October 30th. Robbin’s central concern over this period was to explore strategies for representing four-dimensional space in two- and three-dimensional abstract art. The results were works that offer the viewer a dazzling visual experience grounded in the artist’s rigorous understanding of the principles of higher-dimensional geometry. Robbin has noted: “Artists who are interested in four-dimensional space are not motivated by a desire to illustrate new physical theories. We are motivated by a desire to complete our subjective experience by inventing new aesthetic and conceptual capabilities.” His imaginative power to bring together the worlds of art and science successfully can be seen in this exhibition.
