Pinned and Wriggling on the Wall
College of the Atlantic, January 2011

 

The Wedding of Freddie Mercury and Gertrude Stein, mixed media and vinyl adhesive on paper, 38 x 76," 2010

 

"Robin Ward practices a profound form of art‐making that interrogates the interstices of social, aesthetic, and philosophical theories in a way that is authentically interdisciplinary – true Queering of the unanswerable Question. Much lip service is paid to cross‐disciplinary pursuits (and public tolerance for same-sex couples) these days ‐ Ward’s work is a meticulously wrought and thoroughly engaged enquiry into what it is to be Queer; it is as close to a comedic form of commentary in the spirit of Daumier as any contemporary work being produced. The work crosses boundaries of knowledge and experience in a fresh and clever tactical display because the maker becomes the voice of other."
