A Congregation of Wits/ Animation

Following in the tradition of Jenny Holzer’s “Truisms”, a series of text-based works that were once placed into the empty theatre marquees along 42nd Street, visual artist Andrew Cornell Robinson has drawn and animated 1,000 images with interstitial messages rendered in a rough and gestural line. Exploring the glut of images that coalesce upon platforms like social media, Robinson has created a contemporary congregation of images and ideas through his black and white hand-drawn animations that flicker through a kaleidoscope of symbols and uncanny proverbs provoking playful associations of rough-hewn lines and forms presented in rapid-fire succession.

Congregation of Wits III (Kaleidoscope)

This second animation is vertical in format and is simplified in that the text is omitted. This series of animations are related to an ongoing body of work titled Congregation of Wits, which began as a drawing project and led to an edition of double-sided silkscreen prints of the same title and includes these stop motion animations as well as a developing body of ceramic sculptures.
