Using knitting and performance, I investigate the public art in my local environment and highlight the values our culture celebrates.


Leslie Robison is interested in breaking down the language, symbols, and actions that define power in various relationships and within such institutions as art, politics, and academia.  Mixed media drawing and performance become the means of investigating these structures.  Whether they be drawn or knitted, scribbled or written as words, the lines in these drawings, paintings, and installations confound direct communication even as they reference the traditional language of art.  By also examining her participation in these systems, the artist is simultaneously critical, questioning, and self-mocking.
