Artist Biography

Robin Hill is an artist and professor at the University of California, Davis whose work, while primarily defined as sculpture, crosses disciplinary boundaries. She makes objects, photographs, and drawings. She is interested in the ways in which two and three-dimensional art practices inform each other. She is represented by Lennon Weinberg, Inc., New York.  Her most recent exhibition there, entitled Case Discussions, consisted of a series of interventions with repurposed laboratory equipment of varying shapes, sizes, and origins, and addressed issues of organization, classification, perception, and color. Her work has been exhibited extensively both nationally and abroad and is in numerous private and corporate collections, as well as in the collections of the Richard L. Nelson Gallery & The Fine Arts Collection, the Fogg Art Museum, and the UCLA Hammer Museum. She is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts, Individual Artist Fellowship in Sculpture, two Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowships, and two New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships.
