Robin Kang with inspiration materials in her studio.
Born in Kerrville, Texas, Robin Kang has developed an artistic trajectory that honors her southwestern roots and ventures boldly into the future. My relationship with Robin goes back to 2008, and her practice has developed significantly since then. Over the last several years Robin has participated in artist residencies such as AIR Projects – Beijing, and at Ox-Bow. She has organized art events in Texas, Florida, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and in her Chicago apartment gallery project, Carousel Space. Her current practice, based in NY, encompasses sculptural brick-laying, stacking plywood, electronic forms, and a practice of weaving. In effect, her art transcends the culturally gendered nature of many forms of work.
