Nathaniel Robinson’s recent sculptures and installations make approaches to the complexity, variety, constraints, and freedoms within The Sensible Range, or the field of contact with the world afforded by perception. Taking familiar objects and states of affairs as its starting point, the work addresses itself to the general and particular problems of locating the self in relation to the world. Viewed as a whole it begins to integrate a range not only of scale and structure, but also of significance and status. In their disparate ways of being made – the various routes they take to representation – the works seem to place very different demands on the viewer and the maker; but on inspection and consideration they may offer, if not shared understanding, the possibility of common access.
