This most recent exhibition is an Aladdin's cave of found treasures formed into the most telling and emotionally involving of sculptural objects. From the show-stopping boat, which speaks of the refugee crisis, to an arrangement of driftwood called 'Donald looms large over the horizon', bruck is made to speak. The artist has made challenging, informative and beautiful work from found wood and plastic arranged with exquisite precision in simple frames and boxes.
Robinson RR taught in Orkney for more than two decades and former pupils will remember his classes as exciting, creative spaces. Since he retired he has focussed on his art practice.
