Art Desks

Art Desks by E. Brady Robinson began in Washington, D.C. in 2011 and features photographs of the desks and working spaces of artists, curators, art dealers, and critics throughout the East Coast. This series explores the idea of desk as portrait combined with the social experiment of navigating the art world. Art Desks is published by Daylight Books with introduction by Andy Grundberg. Robinson’s subjects include: Cricket Taplin, art collector from the Cricket Taplin Collection at the Sagamore Hotel, Mera Rubell, art collector from the Rubell Family Art Collection, David Ward, Senior Historian from the National Portrait Gallery, Anna Walker-Skillman, Owner for Jackson Fine Art, artist William Christenberry among others.

Art Desks has received the Grand Prize Award in the American Life exhibition in the 2011 Lishui Photography Festival, China. Select work from the DC series was selected by independent curator Larissa Leclair from the Indie Photobook Library. The 2011 Lishui Photography Festival is the largest International Photography Festival in China. American Life was produced by Yan Li, Director of High Noon Culture & Art Corp in Beijing, China and featured 20 American photographers selected by 10 American Curators. The exhibition continued after the festival for a one-year tour in major galleries and museums throughout China including ShiJiaZhuang Art Museum China (2012) and 2013 Dali Photo Festival in China.

Shift

Robinson is a photographer who exploits the tradition of the “snapshot” to examine social and cultural environments. Her work is informed by the technology of instant mobile image capture, as well as travel and landscape photography. She offers viewers multiple points of view and cross-cultural references while evoking the split second of time during which one experiences fleeting frames of existence from the window seat of a car, train or airplane. The installation is a mapping of geography encountered and time lived as the artist drifts from landscape to landscape both in her home country and abroad. Locations include both Europe and North America.

Scenes from Jesusland

Scenes from Jesusland documents the spectacle of a Christian theme park located in Orlando, Florida. Humor and irony are combined within a documentary approach to examine hyperreality and the appropriation of Bible narratives. I focus on the theatrical setting, which includes a replica of ancient Jerusalem, biblical exhibits and tourist interactions with the simulated environment. These images examine the curious crossroad of religion with tourism and commodity culture.
