“A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.” — Jean Genet

38w x 38h x 3.75d ground shungite stone, charcoal, plaster, sand, concrete,
ground black onyx, oil housed in a handmade shou sugi ban frame (burnt to a dark char)

"absence of light" was infused with ground shungite tone throughout the concrete layers. "the miracle stone of the 21st century" shungite is now the go-to stone for electromagnetic field (EMF) protection, purification and detoxification of the body, as well as general healing and emotional well being. shungite has been around for an estimate two billion years and is composed mostly of pure carbon. shungite is also the only known natural mineral to contain fullerenes, which are specific molecular formations of carbon that act as powerful, long-lasting antioxidants.

handcrafted paintings blurring the lines between art, poetry, and sculpture.

visceral home is a husband and wife team who create therapeutic textured art inspired by their mental health recovery journey. Taylor and Connor Robinson use a variety of natural and unnatural materials to story-tell within their works, including but always expanding: plaster, concrete, rock pigment, exotic wood, driftwood, embroidered or hanging hand-spun yarn, healing crystals, iron, gemstone minerals, oil, rust, sand, and stone. Connor Robinson builds each canvas that his wife Taylor Robinson (maiden name Redler) unfolds her artistic vision upon. Connor finishes each project by housing each painting in a hand crafted frame using a wide variety of wood species and woodworking techniques to best honor their work. Their art is partnered with vulnerable poetry/biographies in hopes to de-stigmatize mental health and addiction recovery.

The team chose to use their surname, visceral home, to avoid conforming to a particular artform. They find themselves consistently expanding and evolving their technique, process, style, and concepts. In addition to sculptural wall art/installations, the team has been experimenting with building new conceptual furnishing designs. Expanding into furniture design is a goal for the couple, and will be launching in the near future.

With a deep love of interior design and architecture, they find themselves constantly inspired by innovative spaces that merge together raw, textured, natural influenced organic concepts with accents that outlast fast design trends in this new social media era. They often consider industrial modernism and organic soft scandinavian + asian influences while designing/preparing art projects. Keeping in mind the spaces their art lands will continue to morph into new personalities, they focus on creating art that can be everlasting through many design changes.

Taylor is most drawn to earth tone palettes, and minerals found in nature, highlighting the natural healing beauty of the color palettes found outdoors. Using art to provoke conversation they have a mission to illustrate vulnerability, aiming to cultivate positive change in the stigma revolving mental health. The hope being to take uncomfortable conversations that are rarely had, and using abstract expressionism as a euphemism. Art is their way of artistically transmuting trauma, releasing and transforming pain into meaning. The couple has a personal mission of keeping their primary purpose to build a platform large enough to impact the stigma around mental health.
