Artist’s Statement:
The sea, sky and sailboats are some of my favorite subjects, having spent a good deal of time sailing in years past. “Celestial Sailor” is from my series of mobiles atop sailboat bases that combine the elements of the sailor’s experience: boat, sea, wind, sun and sky.

Artist’s Bio: Amos Robinson is based in San Diego where he creates stainless steel sculptures, mobiles and kinetic art (large and small). Through his artwork he explores the interplay of the environment with the polished surfaces and fluid configurations of his stainless steel forms. Air movement, light and reflected surroundings energize his sculptures.

Amos’ work is in many private collections and his public art installations in California include sculptures in Tidelands Park on Coronado, the Wolfstein Sculpture Parks at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla and Encinitas, the Manpower corporate office in downtown San Diego, and the Cedros Avenue Design District in Solana Beach.
