Create or Else visited the Edward F. Albee Foundation to interview me during a residency.

Born in the infamous and industrious city of Camden, New Jersey, artist Andrew Cornell Robinson has always worked with his hands.  He is an artist, educator and designer and the principle of the arts and crafts research studio which serves as a platform for independent and collaborative projects that include independent and collaborative art and design projects, curatorial work, writing, and freelance art criticism.

In addition to his primary work as an artist he is also an award winning designer with over seventeen years of experience, working as creative director of branding and interactive design. He is a member of the faculty at Parsons, the New School for Design where he teaches art, design and design strategies.
He received a Master of Fine Arts in sculpture from the School of Visual Arts, a Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics from the Maryland Institute College of Art. And he studied ceramic sculpture at the Glasgow School of Art. In his youth he was apprenticed in a production pottery for eight years where he established an early foundation in working with his hands and a lifelong dedication to making.

"Andrew Cornell Robinson uses his unique, theatrical approach to ceramics and sculpture to beguile the audience then thwart expectations. Trophies for the non-heroic and glazed clay effigies of flowerless houseplants are quirky and charming, but also possess a kind of magic. They're like freshly three-dimensional props from scenes taking place within the artist's own id." - Doug McClemont
