  • MY NAME IS SASKIA ROBINSON I AM A SCULPTOR BASED IN SCOTLAND. I GRADUATED FROM THE GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART IN SCULPTURE IN 2020. I CARE VERY DEEPLY ABOUT SCULPTING THE HUMAN FORM, PLANTS AND ANIMALS IN CLAY. MUCH OF MY RESEARCH IS INVESTED IN HELLENISTIC SCULPTURE AS WELL AS THE ART OF THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE, GREEK AND CELTIC MYTHOLOGY AND THE SCOTTISH ENLIGHTENMENT MOVEMENT. I HAVE A SPECIAL INTEREST IN SCULPTING WITHIN NEOCLASSICAL TRADITION, PRIMARILY WITH FIGURATIVE AND PORTRAIT SCULPTURE, STATUES AND LOW RELIEFS IN CLAY AND PLASTER. I AM DRAWN TO THE UNIVERSALITY OF CLASSICAL AESTHETICS AND PRINCIPLES. MY DESIRE IS TO CREATE SCULPTED HUMAN FORMS IN CONNECTION TO AND AS ALLEGORIES OF PROCESSES IN NATURE AND AS A MEANS OF EXPRESSING STORIES AND CHARACTERS OF HISTORIC AND MYTHOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE. THIS MEANS OF STORYTELLING AND EVOKING AN EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL CONNECTION THROUGH SCULPTING FLORA, FAUNA AND THE HUMAN FORM IN CLAY IS FUNDAMENTALLY VERY CLOSE TO MY HEART WITH EVERYTHING THAT I DO AS AN ARTIST.
