An active artist for more than two decades, Robin Richerson has now found his passion through the modeling of clay. He achieves this by creating figurative art where he captures a moment in time with his subject matter. His excitement in art comes from the identification of the story being revealed to the observer through a gesture or body language, and an ability to find movement in each design.
In non-objective pieces, Mr. Richerson works to create movement and drama within positive and negative spaces so that a constant reshaping is revealed as the viewer moves around the piece.
Robin was raised in the Midwestern United States and has had the opportunity to travel widely through much of the US, Europe, and Asia. His early sculptural experience involved working in various media, including carved wood and stone, as well as welded steel constructions.
EDUCATION AND MEMBERSHIPS
Robin received a Bachelor of Arts degree in fine art from the University of Missouri. After graduation, Robin was mentored for four years by Kwan Wu, a Chinese-American sculptor widely considered to be one of the best figurative sculptors in the world. Kwan Wu was originally invited to America by former KU art professor Elden Tefft and later won the commission to create the Phog Allen monumental bronze statue that stands outside of historic Allen Fieldhouse on KU’s campus. Robin is an active member of the Greater Kansas City Artist Association and maintains memberships with the Kansas City Art Coalition and Images Art Gallery in Overland Park, Kansas.
Mr. Richerson has completed numerous commissions for businesses, organizations, universities, and private collectors across the US and Europe. He has created memorials and architectural scale sculptures for businesses and cities.
