Children of Illusion:
A Solo Exhibition by Robin Whiteman

This work is an ongoing exploration of consciousness. As humans
we live in a world of polarities. It seems to me as though these apparent opposites are growing more extreme and vocal, whether coming from the natural environment, human culture, or our inner mind states. Clay is the perfect medium for me to connect thought
and form. Each piece becomes a meditation on how I can bring more acceptance and love to the seeming divides within and around me.
I merge religious iconography, children's stories, myth and personal imagery to create these works. I choose to use little or no color
in order to simplify and preserve line quality and instead allow
the radiance of the vitrified clay to bring the piece to life.
The diminutive size keeps the work personal, like a treasure

or talisman. Small and quiet, yet potent.
