I Know Why The Caged Bird Died
Drawing




A. R. Wood is an American artist living in New York.  Robin studied art, art history and contemporary theater at Skidmore College under Gautam Dasgupta and John Cunningham.  She continued her work in Seville, where she took sculpture classes at the Academia de Bellas Artes and made assemblages built from rummaged objects she collected in the dumpsters.  In 1999, she was awarded a fellowship to work in Sardinia under the sculptor and muralist Pinuccio Sciola.  She spent the summer painting murals in the streets of San Sperate and at the end of the summer her shoes were acquired for the historical archives of the Paese Museo.  Her work in sculpture was sidelined for a career in media and small apartment living.  For the last decade her preferred medium has been ink and bingo markers on paper.   She was introduced to the colorful world of bingo daubers by the artist Scott Davis, who at the time was running the Laughing Lobster Pier in Winter Harbor, Maine. Her first drawing with a dauber was the red lobster she had had that day for lunch.  Food continues to make its way into her work, such as a frog that was caught on a trip to an Argentine swamp and sauteed up for her in the horse stables, the periwinkle she pierced with a fork over a family dinner at Aquagrill, and "American Beef French Style" a drawing in honor of the "Diner Des Amis" held at Les Halles in Washington D.C.  She draws from memories that rattle her including hot afternoons at the bullfights, her father's losing battle with brain cancer, haunting encounters with the ubiquitous rats in New York, and unforgettable evenings at the Burlesque Cabaret, The Box.
