Aurora Robson

The majority of the work I’ve been doing over the past decade has been centered around exploring plastic debris as a viable art material. We think of plastic as disposable when it is precisely the opposite, so I extract it from its problematic destructive fate and utilize its potential to become a source for enjoyable reflection. It is a process of rescuing, de-contextualizing and romancing. Developing more appropriate, robust and integrated methods for managing our residue is essential at this time.

Aurora Robson is a multi-media artist known predominantly for her meditative work intercepting the plastic waste stream. Her practice is about subjugating negativity and shifting trajectories. Her work is a formal meditation on recurring nightmares she had as a child which she hybridizes with forms found in nature. Robson was born in Toronto in 1972 and grew up in Hawaii. She lived and worked in New York City for over 2 decades during which time she studied art history and visual arts at Columbia University.

Aurora Robson is a recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Grant, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Sculpture, a TED/Lincoln Re-Imagine Prize and a National Endowment for the Arts Art Work Grant. She has exhibited her work internationally in museums, galleries and non-traditional spaces since 2002.
