Robbin Deyo

223-225 West 10th Street - New York, New York

Time Equities Inc. Art-in-Buildings is pleased to announce the newest exhibition at the West 10th Window: Robbin Deyo, The Gathering (Assembly #2).

Robbin Deyo's The Gathering (Assembly #2) has a quiet presence. Composed of unique spherical wooden forms, each hand-turned on a lathe and painted, Deyo's objects are evocative of biological forms such as spores, sea urchins, and viruses, or suggestive of symbols of radiant energies, such as chakras and starbursts. Within the boundaries of the West 10th Window, Deyo's forms push against the walls and glass, maintaining a delicate balance. Their installation within the vitrine of the window suggests that the forms are specimens to be studied, but en masse they are evocative of sentient moving forms, clambering over each other for a view, prepared and poised to break out. Invading or inhabiting, Deyo explores how these pseudo-biological objects take up space, filling their environment and interacting amongst themselves.

Born and raised in British Columbia, Canada, Robbin Deyo now lives and works in Montreal, Québec. Deyo completed a BFA at Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design, Vancouver, B.C. and received a MFA from Concordia University, Montréal. Her work has been presented in exhibitions across Canada, in the United States, and Europe. She is represented by Paul Kuhn Gallery in Calgary and ELLEPHANT in Montreal.

The creation of this work was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.

Next up at the West 10th Window: Ryan Frank, Negar Behbahani, and Mollie Murphy.
